A small former Marston’s pub just off the town centre on the main road to Chapel-en-le-Frith. The proximity of Buxton’s Wetherspoon’s may have contributed to its demise.
An imposing 1930s pub in the Moderne Style, complete with tower, once well-known as a live music venue. In its day it was considered an example of enlightened contemporary pub design. Now in the process of redevelopment as retirement apartments.
A large white-painted canalside pub on the eastern edge of the town. Pictured on a damp, miserable day, this one looks particularly sad and forlorn and seems to sum up the plight of pubs in Britain today.
Originally called the Earl Grey, this inter-wars pub was designed for the Carlisle State Management Scheme by architect Harry Redfern in an Art Deco style rather than his usual Arts and Crafts idiom. It is now, as the StreetView image shows, a Taekwon-do school.
A white-painted pub on a sharp corner in the Peak District. Robinson’s signage now removed but not actually boarded up as such. It was originally called the Duke of Devonshire but gained its later name after it was up for sale by the Devonshire estate for two years in the 1950s until someone made a bid for it.
Apparently it has been bought by new owners who plan to reopen it as an agricultural supplies store with small attached bar.

A small country pub, originally called the Railway. It was then renamed the Foxcote Manor when the licensees acquired the nameplates of the GWR Manor class locomotive of that name, and then just the Foxcote. StreetView shows it still trading as a pub in 2009, proclaiming “Seafood is our Speciality”. It is now a weekends-only tearoom and antiques centre.

A stone-built main road pub on the south-west side of the city with a distinctive bow-windowed frontage. Note the chap walking along with his jacket slung over his shoulder.
