Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
Where the street curves is the dominant Lorna Doone Hotel, two-storey with a second floor in large projecting gables and smaller central gables. The present building, mainly of brick with a slate roof probably dates from the mid 19th century.  In 1886 the Three Horse Shoes Inn was closed and sold for £600 and a new hotel known as the Lorna Doone Hotel was built on the site.  The Lorna Doone Hotel was photographed in c.1900. It was built in the latter part of the 19th Century.
