Why is the Black Bull sign upside down?
Bob Sykes, a previous landlord of the Black Bull was more than surprised when National Parks officials took exception to his attempts to tidy up the exterior of the public house. He removed the render from the outside of the hotel to expose the original 250-year-old walls. The work was partly carried out to comply with English Tourist Board accommodation grading requirements.

But Mr Sykes also feared that the crumbling render was a potential danger to the public. However, Park officials threatened legal action if the render was not replaced.. The Authorities argued that the building would originally have had some form of render. Shortly after the render was removed, some local pranksters turned the sign upside down in protest at the Authorities attitude. The sign has moved now but still remains upside down.
