The George

Date of photo: 1952

Picture source: David Gray


 
The George was situated on High Road.
 
The George was a of a Mud and Stud construction which would have been typical of the 18th century and was built on the turnpike (High Road) between Spalding and Holbeach. We have been told by someone who lived near by in WW2 that the volume of traffic that came up and down that main road was such that literally it shook the foundations as the building was not made to have tanks, lorries and so forth go past. This gave me a starting date to look for a closure and I have found in the British Newspaper Archive that the Lincolnshire Echo for Saturday 2 April 1949 that a meeting of the Holland Licensing Committee, at Spalding (1 April 1949) confirmed an order of the Spalding Brewster Sessions refusing to renew the license of the George Inn, Moulton on the grounds that the premises are structurally deficient and unsuitable.
