jim88888888: I think its time to archive this cache. There have been a few dnf's and we're unable to get to the site to check if it is still there. The adjacent building is run down and its no longer a good spot to visit. Well done to all that found it.

Geocache Description:

The cache is a small sealable container, includes log book and pen.

This site was formally an 18th century Coaching Inn and farmhouse combined, Providing accommodation and nourishment for the weary travelers passing through what was once Needwood Forest. The disforestation happening around 1820

Records show an Inn on this site from around 1760. Then named the Moseley Arms. The true age of the building can be seen by its still intact Bake Oven in the corner of the restaurant. And the long forgotten third floor, with its old wooden doors and ornate wooden locks; The larder room with its numerous hooks for hanging game from the ceiling, and the elaborate network of strings and pulleys below the floor boards which operated the bell ringers are just another reminder of its history.
