The Gloucester to Stow on the Wold was turnpiked in 1775 and the Naunton Inn was opened as a house of call for coaches at the junction of the lane from Naunton and the Turn Pike, by the track to Aylworth. The Naunton Inn was 93 and a quarter miles from Hyde Park Corner, London. In 1821 King George IV stopped for refreshment at the Naunton Inn on his way back to London from Ireland, through Milford Haven. The 1891 and 1903 petty sessions refer to the pub as the New Inn.
The Naunton Inn was closed down in 1910 by landowner John Waddingham who, it is said, resented his workers drinking there at lunchtimes. The building then became a farmhouse. In fact the building is now called Church Farm House. There are large doors to the left of the building which once led to stables at the rear.
