Summary

Mounting block. c1822. Stone, painted.

Description

Mounting block. c1822. Stone, painted.

The mounting block stands at the right-hand end of the east elevation of the Eagle and Child Public House. It comprises a single block of stone carved into four steps rising parallel to the pub wall. The steps are worn towards the centre; they are presently painted white and black.

History

The mounting block stands to the right of the original main entrance in the east elevation of the Eagle and Child Public House on the Main Street of Auckley. The first documentary evidence for the pub is in 1822 when an alehouse keeper's recognizance (bond) was issued for Richard Gillat of the Eagle and Child in Auckley. It is likely that the mounting block is of a similar date, placed there for use by the pub's customers.

Reasons for Listing

The mounting block adjacent to the north-east corner of the Eagle and Child Public House, Auckley, of c1822 is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural Interest: as a good surviving example of a once common piece of street furniture and a reminder of the former pre-eminence of horse transport
* Historic Interest: dating from the early C19 and in its original location for use by customers of the public house
