Built in 1520 The white hart inn is the oldest pub in bodmin and still has many of its original features. During the 16th century the building was used as a magistrates court. Those found guilty of heinous crimes, such as sheep stealing , were sent to the nearby goal (jail), Where , if they were lucky they served long sentences in the harshest of conditions. The less fotunate were hanged. Today the goal (jail) is a tourest attraction, were you can visit the dungeons and cells and see the gallows (only a five min walk from here ).
In the 18th century The white hart became the debtors court, and the building on the other side the road, that is now The hole in the wall, was the debtors prison. Legend has it that somewhere in the walls of The white hart inn there is a door leading to a passageway to the hole in the wall.
