Old Greyhound achieves Grade II Listing
Gregg Redford Saturday 28th July 2007

It was announced yesterday that the Old Greyhound, Main Street, Aslockton has been granted a Grade II listing.

English Heritage is the listing particulars explained that the reasons for the listing were:

  • A little altered early 19th Century building with an early18th Century read wing.
  • An unusual building type since the front range is almost cetainly purpose-built as a public house.
  • The plan form supports this with a serving hatch in the entrance lobby and a closed in stair opposite seperating the public and private areas.
  • Original stabling with mangers and stalls together with a small coach house are a very unusual extra survival
