Pitts Head Far Gosford St William Pitt (1759 - 1806) was known as William Pitt the Younger. His father had been a popular statesman and Pitt followed him into parliament at the age of twenty two. He was prime ministaer at the remarkably young age of twenty four. He was renown for his debating skills but it was said that those who listened to him were always more aware of the speaker than the message. Pitts Head Far Gosford St Colour This pub appears to date from before 1800. The present building is two storey, in brick, with a parapet and of six bays. The door and carriageway are either side of four ground storey windows. Between 1874 and 1909 No 65 was seperated from the pub and was a chemist's shop.
