With original open fireplaces a wood-panelled bar and timber beams that divide the building into lots of cosy nooks and crannies the Cross Roads’ history is a big part of its character. Part of the charming pub building is a former cottage believed to have been used as a tollhouse when a new turnpike was laid here back in the 18th century. Weedon itself is a parish made up of two ancient settlements Upper Weedon and Lower Weedon which have a handful of notable sites between them. These include the Grade II-listed walls and storehouses of a former Military Ordnance Depot built for the British Army in the early 1800s as a defence against Napoleon. .
