Crispin Inn at Ashover

Pub sign to be found at the Crispin Inn at Ashover. It states 'This house probably dates from the year 1416 when Thomas Babbington of Dethick and several men of Ashover returned from the battle of Agincout which was on St. Crispins Day.... In 1646 Job Wall, landlord of the inn, withstood the troops in the doorway and told them they should have no more drink in this house as they had too much already, but they turned him out and set watch at the door while the ale was drunk or wasted'
