The building is now called Raban Court but these 16th Century buildings
were once an inn called the Talbot. The Talbot was a hunting dog and the open fields to the east of the town were famed for hunting and coursing. The dog also featured on the arms of the Burgoynes, 16th century Lords of Clothall Manor in which this area of Baldock once stood. In
the 18th century these buildings became part of a large complex of maltings.
