‘THE PIED BULL’

This is one of the few remaining thatched-roof buildings in Shepshed and stands up the hill in Belton Street. It was once a farmhouse and is over 300 years old. Queen Elizabeth I ordered mulberry trees to be planted to feed silkworms as silk was a popular material at Court.

The Pied Bull Pub

The remains of many mulberry trees could once be found in the grounds at the back of the Pied Bull. The pub was once a coaching inn and there was dancing at the back of the inn during Wakes Week. The Old Pied Bull was situated next to the post office in the Market Place.
