Here are two views of the White Hart hotel that I remember very well as a child. I always thought it odd to have such a huge statue of an animal on the front of a house, especially a mythical animal. It seemed a bit like putting a unicorn outside your front door. Why would anyone want to do that?!
I now know there are loads of White Hart pubs and hotels around the UK, so it's not that unusual at all. But where did all the *real* white harts go, eh? Was there a herd of 'em in Oldton, perhaps?
