General Information

For one weekend only we are delighted to welcome back due to popular demand The Kings Shilling. The expression ‘to take the king’s shilling’, meant to sign up to join the armed forces. A bonus payment of a shilling was offered to tempt lowly paid workers to leave their trade. During the Napoleonic period, (at 12p to a shilling), this represented six days wages in one go. Come and have a chat and learn of their experiences and adventures.
