  Photograph of the 15th Century Woolpack Inn, Church Street, Coggeshall, Essex, England   The Woolpack Inn.

This inn was built in the 15th century and was standing next to the parish church even before America was discovered. Its original owner is unknown, although it is likely that it once belonged to one of Coggeshall's rich merchants.

Between 1665 and 1708, the house was used as a Non-Conformist chapel, and in 1708 became an Inn known as the Woolpack.

They do very good lunches here with a good choice of meals.
