A small white-painted street-corner pub in a typical Black Country area of mixed residential and industrial development.
Just round the corner from the White Swan, this Brewer’s Tudor pub shown on StreetView in 2008 has now become Bolsover Antiques. Bolsover seems to have suffered particularly badly from pub closures, with three recently lost on or just off the central square, although the former premises of “The Keep Sports Bar” almost next door have now become Wetherspoon’s Pillar of Rock.
A small white-painted roadside pub in a popular tourist spot next to the Forest. It was converted from a private hotel in the 70s or 80s, but never seems to have prospered as a pub.
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.

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.
