This is one of Wellingborough's oldest buildings, and possesses a genuine minstrel's gallery. It was constructed as a house in 1540 and it displays a fine combination of limestone and ironstone lines and a stout timber-framed bay projects from the left side of the main entrance. It was modified during the 17th century and in 1830 it became an inn.

This is reckoned to be possibly the finest United Reformed Church in the country, and with its circular shape enjoys excellent accoustics. This Grade II*-listed building dates from 1875. The architect was E Sharman to a plan by Caleb Archer.
