High Harrington (3)
(Scaw Road and above)

Sycamore Terrace (Scaw Road) with the post office and the Galloping Horse

The Galloping Horse with the Francis family standing outside
(note the sign for the Strawberry Gardens)

In "Harrington Through The Years" Book 6 there was an article about the pubs
of Harrington, going back to 1851, which gave the Galloping Horse's location as
"Smithy Green". The Smithy is still in existance across the road, as shown below.

The Smithy was later converted into the High Harrington Reading Room.
It is still in great condition and in use as a garage.
