The Jolly Hatters

The Jolly Hatters, Denton, Lancashire

A four-square redbrick former Hydes pub on the Stockport road just south of the town-centre crossroads at Crown Point. Since the StreetView image was taken, it appears to have been revived in some form but is currently listed as closed again.

The Wheel

The Wheel, Findern, Derbyshire

A four-square, cream-painted pub on the main street of this attractive village south-west of Derby near the Toyota plant. On the StreetView image from 2009 it is displaying banners saying “Under New Management” and “Finest Cask Ales and Lagers”, but now is sadly de-signed and with peeling paintwork.

The White Swan

The White Swan, Bolsover, Derbyshire

An attractive double-gabled stone-built pub in the centre of this small former mining town noted for its magnificent 17th century castle.

The Foresters Arms

The Foresters Arms, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A large corner pub on the north side of the town that closed earlier this year after having experienced a steady decline and being the scene of one or two unfortunate incidents.

The Waggon & Horses

The Waggon & Horses, Derby

A former Marston’s pub on the main Ashbourne Road with distinctive stone window surrounds, still displaying all its signage on StreetView.

The White Lion

The White Lion, Castle Gresley, Derbyshire

A small pub set back from the main A444 that has now made someone a nice house – even though it is opposite a van sales depot.

The Oddfellows’ Arms

The Oddfellows’ Arms, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A small redbrick street-corner pub in an area of terraced housing on the south side of the town, which has had its signage remoed but isn’t actually boarded up. Just down the street from the Labourers’ Union.

The Navigation

The Navigation, Overseal, Derbyshire

A roadside pub in a former mining area in the extreme south of the country, still looking quite smart on the 2011 StreetView image. The name refers to the Ashby-de-la-Zouch canal which once terminated nearby at Moira.

The Rose & Crown

The Rose & Crown, Thringstone, Leicestershire

A tall, shallow, three-storey pub facing the village green in a former mining area near Coalville. Still open on StreetView, but if you take a few steps forward it’s been tinned up.

The Old Bush

The Old Bush, Shrewsbury, Shropshire

An old, gabled, half-timbered pub on Abbey Foregate, east of the town centre, once the main road to London.

The Gibraltar Rock

The Gibraltar Rock, Bolton, Lancashire

This pub on one of Bolton’s main radial routes has now been converted to a Spar convenience store, but retains its distinctive frontage lettering and a sign on the end wall advertising the former facilities – which manages to spell its name incorrectly!

The Star & Garter

The Star & Garter, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A large redbrick street corner pub with a pair of distinctive gables, still open (although up for lease) on the 2010 StreetView image.

The King’s Head

The King’s Head, Morton, Lincolnshire

This pub was closed following a fire in 2007, and later bought by the Co-op, who flattened the site with the intention of building a shop on it. However, they subsequently bought the Lord Nelson opposite, which is on a bigger site and which they were able to convert to a shop using the existing building without needing planning permission.

The Fox & Duck

The Fox & Duck, Hanley, Staffordshire

A prominent corner pub just north-east of Stoke-on-Trent city centre that was once popular with Stoke City fans on matchdays. Clearly the introduction of cask ale – as advertised on a banner – failed to save it.

The Adswood Hotel

The Adswood Hotel, Stockport, Cheshire

A large pub with an attractive cobbled forecourt in a well-populated area of terraced housing. Recently closed by Robinson’s Brewery as part of their cull of under-performing pubs and apparently destined for redevelopment as yet more housing. Still open – and looking quite appealing – on StreetView.

The Black Horse

The Black Horse, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A large inter-wars pub in the Art Deco style on the main A444 road south out of the town heading to Nuneaton. Still open on StreetView in 2009, although looking rather tatty, but as the picture shows it deteriorated rapidly and the site has now been redeveloped for housing.

The King’s Head

The King’s Head, Ardwick, Manchester

In the shadow of the railway viaduct, this pub now stands rotting and forlorn in an area of car dealerships to the east of the city centre.
