Details

The building with two white oriel windows (bow windows) above an optician's is the Old Club. Set up in 1810, it was the first hunting club in Melton Mowbray and was quite exclusive as it could only house four guests. Despite this many hunters attended raucous dinners there and as a bet one evening, somebody jumped their horse over the dining table.
