Long Description:
The Vernon Arms is a traditional country pub that dates from the 17th Century and is a Grade II listed building. (visit link)
In the days of stage-coach travel The Vernon Arms was an important staging post on the Lichfield-Buxton turnpike road. (visit link)

"The Vernon Arms has been an inn since the medieval times and it appears on the earliest known plan of the village dated 1659.
It was rebuilt in the 1670s by George Vernon it was an important feature of his improved estate village and a busy stage-coach travel stop. The building actually straddles a small stream - a great advantage before piped running water. The stream still runs beneath the building today and emerges on the far side of the road next to the bowling green." Source No11: (visit link)
