The Blackhorse Inn, Longbrook Street, Exeter

Scaffold erected for access to redecorate the front and rear and re-roof of this 18th century building for Turvey Construction.

This much favoured haunt of the university student fraternity, the Black Horse Inn is the oldest public house in the vicinity of Longbrook Street and New North Road. It was established in the early 18th century as a coaching inn on the main route from Tiverton to the city – this was before the alternate route via Cowley along the Exe Valley was established.
