Built on the site of a row of 19thC cottages to replace the SHIP, which closed May 1967. Construction of the new house commenced late August 1966 and completed in record time.

The first licence for this house was granted in the name of the SHIP, to Watney Mann, 11th April 1967 and the house opened Thursday 4th May 1967 as the ARK ROYAL.

Described as of simple design, modern in aspect, yet in keeping with the locality by having a plinth of pebble stones, with brick and timber walls. Two mosaic panels planted to the face of the brickwork, one showing the latest aircraft carrier bearing the name Ark Royal, the other being a reproduction of the Elizabethan Ark Royal.
