Ship Inn Marske

A postcard view of The Ship Inn Marske, this popular village amenity is a Grade II listed building and described in the Listed British Buildings as: “A very complete example of an Inter-War, Roadhouse type public house.” The building was dating from 1932, although this was a site on which have stood a succession of similarly named buildings. The mock Tudor timber framing originated from the battleships HMS Collingwood and HMS Southampton; the two battleships being scrapped between 1909 and 1912 by Hughes-Bolckow in the north east of England.
