THE WHITE HART, ST.AUSTELL

This is the White Hart Hotel and Bar in the center of St.Austell, right opposite the church. I chose this particular photo today because there is a link with a previous post about Charlestown.

The link being that the Georgian White Hart was once the home of Charles Rashleigh - the man who built the harbour and village of Charlestown in the late 1700s.

The distinctive red/orange building in the background  was built a lot later in 1898 and is now a bank. It was designed by Silvanus Trevail and the red terracotta bricks came all the way from Ruanon in North Wales.

That's it for today, other than another photo of the White Hart.

  4. Thank you David. There is a comfortable bar and restaurant and the hotel side to the White Hart seems to be quite busy. I like to see these old buildings flourishing.
