An impressive triangular corner pub boasting its own clock tower, situated right next to the Aston Expressway.
A large roadside pub, still in Greenall’s livery, in an area that has seen large numbers of new houses built recently, so lack of potential customers cannot be used as an excuse for its closure. Between the 2011 StreetView image and my current picture it had a brief incarnation under an Italian pizzeria brand. Fairly close to the now-demolished Railway.
(My own picture)
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.
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.
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.
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.
A roadside pub in a former mining area in the extreme south of the county, 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.
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.
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!
A large redbrick street corner pub with a pair of distinctive gables, still open (although up for lease) on the 2010 StreetView image.
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.
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.
