The Coach and Horses, Blackwood

A once famous inn located in Blackwood but sadly demolished in 1958.  The inn was an important meeting place for the Chartists prior to their march on Newport in 1839.  Today Chartist House stands on the site and a plaque was unveiled to signify its importance to local history.

Photographs prior to demolish show windows blocked up to escape paying the window tax!
