Hotel in a knot

When you hear the words 'railway hotel' you know just what you'll find - something amazingly solid and even elaborate. 
The North Stafford Railway Hotel, which stands opposite the railway station itself, was built in 1848 at the height of the early railway boom.  The North Staffs Railway Company must have insisted on the knots being in the design - the Knot being the symbol of the locality.
