Notification from English Heritage regarding an application to remove the building from the list. Following an assessment of the building, the decision was made to remove the building from the list for the following reasons: The destructive fire and subsequent building works at the White Hart Inn mean that almost all of the historic fabric of this building has been replaced with new materials. The building is therefore no longer of sufficient architectural or historic interest to merit listing.
The building which was listed Grade II was removed from the list on 24th February 2006.
