The Wanted Inn

The Wanted Inn, Sparrowpit, Derbyshire

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.

  1. The Wanted Inn has now reopened as a free house. The web site for the old Robinson's incarnation is still there though. It needs to be taken down. I have been misled by outdated pub web sites more than once in the past.
