Our History

The Three Horseshoes on Norton Road is a Grade ll listed early 18th century coaching inn that has offered hospitality to locals and passing travellers for over 400 years. Norton was first mentioned as 'Norotune' (the northern enclosed farm) in a charter in the year 1007.

The church of St Nicholas opposite the pub dates back to 1109 and the parish suffered badly during the Black Death in the middle of the 14th Century. It recovered to become a lively farming community in the 17th century.

The pub's 'School Room' was the site of the Danes School until 1873 after which local children were taught in the nearby St Nicholas primary school.

There is reference to Norton manor in the Domesday Book of 1086 and archaeological excavations show evidence of human activity in the area going back to the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age, with continuity into the Roman period. The Three Horseshoes building features, including the old tiled roof and brick gable stacks, were protected by its listed status in 1957.
