Thanks – yes I have seen the HE site and there is some mention of the Inn, but no reference to when it ceased to be a public house and became residential. I was up there recently and the inn itself is a private residence and the three adjoining cottages have been combined to make a second private home. I have found the inn on the 1891 census still in business. Several of the successive landlords were also working in the local quarries (probably Magnum). Interestingly the Junction Inn was struck by lightning in 1849 whilst my 3 x Gt G/F was owner. I hope he was insured and passed them to his son in good repair! If it was my 2 x Gt G/F who sold the properties he did not pass the money down the line to me.
Appreciate you taking the time to respond – this forum is soooo quiet.
