Built early to mid 19th century.
The main door (with 6 sunk panels) leads into a passageway with a similar doorway at the rear and apparently once led to the public house premises and stabling in the yard.
There have been references to two different Beehive pubs in College St, this one and another at no. 50, though there is some doubt about whether no. 50 was actually a pub.
For listing detail see www.imagesofengland.org.uk
In 1861 the pub is listed at 16 College st
