Tyne and Wear HER(13319): Ryhope, Three Boars Head Public House (Ryhope Hall) - Details
Ryhope, Three Boars Head Public House (Ryhope Hall)
Ryhope Hall. In the early 19th century it was a coaching inn (Three Boars Head) and a hotel where gentry stayed to enjoy sea-bathing. The Hall was demolished after a fire in the 1960s to make way for police and council housing. Ryhope Hall had an unusual square brick tower, which is said to have been added so that the lady of the Hall could spy on her neighbour at Coqueda Hall.
