Buildings in Long Melford, Suffolk, England
The buildings in Hall Street date from the 15th century (Medieval) to Victorian. There is a wide variety of shops including many antique shops. Some of the 'Lovejoy' television episodes were filmed here.
You will notice that the road is very wide and cars can be seen to be parked along both sides - convenient but not particulary attractive.
The Bull Hotel was built in about 1450 and so is Medieval but looking closely at some of the features it appears to be Tudor. It was probably altered substantially in Tudor times and you may notice, in the larger view, the typical Tudor door frame in the main entrance.
We had morning coffee here in the lounge with it's massive Elizabethan fireplace. Good coffee but the service was a little slow.
