Woodnewton, Horse & Jockey Inn

An undated image showing the Horse and Jockey Inn on Main Street, Woodnewton. The building itself has been Grade II listed since 1967 and dates back to the 1700s. Today it is in use as a private dwelling.

Patricia Dolby adds, “My great grandparents, Joseph and Elizabeth Dolby, kept this public house approx. 1880-1900. Joseph is listed as the publican of the Horse and Jockey in the post office directory 1881 and 1885 and T. Hardy in 1854 and John Thomas Hardy in 1869 who were both married to Dolby ancestors. I do have my grandfather, John Joseph Dolby’s Woodnewton birth certificate from 1892 listing his father Joseph Dolby as a publican and a farmer.”
