Full Description

Early in the 19th century, the son of a schoolmaster, William Litson, saw the potential for visitors and opened in 1807 what was the beginning of the Valley of the Rocks Hotel on the site of the present Globe Hotel. The 2002 conservation area appraisal states that the Globe public house has an elongated late 19th century frontage that has been very little altered. It is stone built with segmental brick arches and moulded brick drip-stones. There are square-bay oriels, and ornate entrance detail with adjoining panelled double doors, one with side and over-lights, leaded light glazing, and some original stained glass with lettering. [1]
