The German traveller C. P. Moritz stayed the night on a walking tour in 1782: "There were three inns adjacent to each other in Costock, which, to judge by their exteriors, were dens of the most abject poverty. At the one where I stayed only the landlady was at home.... During the evening I felt a kind of fever, slept disturbed that night and lay in bed very long the next morning until my landlady woke me up, saying she was getting worried on my account. I decided to travel on beyond Leicester by coach."
