Slab House Inn

Demolition of The Slab House Inn, 2015

Picture source: Darkstar

The Slab House Inn was closed following a fire on 30th August 2011. The name originated from the time of the Black Death when a three mile quarantine was imposed around Wells. Cautious farmers and traders would leave food, drink on a large slab outside the inn for locals to come and collect.
