Henry rollins on dating
In the Wilton Diptych (National Gallery, London), which is the earliest authentic contemporary portrait of an English king, Richard II wears a gold and enamelled white hart jewel, and even the angels surrounding the Virgin Mary all wear white hart badges.In English Folklore, the white hart is associated with Herne the Hunter.
The building can be seen on reality TV programme,'The Only Way Is Essex'.The White Hart Hotel in Braintree dates back as far as the 14th Century in its current guise, and was placed at the crossroad of two Roman roads that form the centre of Braintree town and Bocking.It was a coaching inn that ran services to Sudbury and Norwich daily, up until the arrival of the railway in 1848.The Dartington Morris Men side was formed at Dartington Hall in 1968 and was given permission (by whom?)to use the crest of the white hart on a red rose as its emblem.It has recently had a renovation by its currents owners and provides an affordable stay.
The White Hart in Brentwood is the oldest pub in the town, dating back to before 1480.
The pub has a very nice garden, with bat and trap in summer.
Part of a quaint market village on the route between Braintree and Colchester, the White Hart Inn at Coggeshall dates back as far as 1420, and still has many of its original features, notably the timber rooms housing up to 18 beds.
The exterior is in the Artisan Mannerist style, the interior has extensive wood panelling, including 17th century work; the building is Grade II* listed.
Local legend, thought to originate in the 19th century and now considered unlikely to be correct, links the building with Sir John Hotham, and the English Civil War; the wood panelled first floor room known as the "Oak Room" or "Plotting Parlour" is the supposed location where Sir John Hotham and others took the decision to refuse King Charles I entry to the town, precipitating the First Siege of Hull.
There is also a large meeting room available for hire.
