The Strines Inn, Bradfield
The Strines Inn is a Grade II listed building which historically has its roots in the 13th century. The Worrall family built a manor house here in 1275 though this was rebuilt and enlarged around 1560. The Inn is situated on the Mortimer Road, which was a Turnpike Road between Grindleford and Penistone built by Hans Winthrop Mortimer (Born 1734 – Died 1807), Member of Parliament for Shaftesbury. Finances were secured for the road in 1768 and this is probably why John Morton bought the Worrall family home and opened it as an inn around 1771, which it has remained since. The pub survived but the road itself was not a financial success. Mortimer was eventually bankrupted following lawsuits arising from dealings in his borough and he spent time as a debtor in the Fleet Prison before his eventual death.
