The Lost Inns of Pocklington
The Bay Horse was one of the Inns of Pocklington, now lost to the town many years ago. Neave states that In 1756 there were 32 Alehouses, 10 of which were unlicenced, and this dropped to 12 by 1782. This may have been due to the influence of John Wesley who visited the town to preach on many occasions.
