The Peel Park Inn

The Peel Park Inn, Salford, Lancashire

A now very forlorn-looking little pub on Salford’s run-down Chapel Street that has been bricked up for years. The next-door building is an interesting piece of architecture.

The Swan

The Swan, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A prominent landmark that used to command the eastern end of the town’s main bridge over the Trent.

The Red Lion

The Red Lion, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A street corner pub near the original site of Marston’s brewery, still open on StreetView. It has now been acquired by the neighbouring St John’s church for use as a community centre.

The Snooty Fox

The Snooty Fox, Swadlincote, Derbyshire

An estate-type pub on the main road heading east out of the town, that gives the impression of once having had ambitions to attract passing trade. Since the photo was taken it has been demolished.

I’ve recently been sent an impressive collection of photos from in and around Burton upon Trent by a local correspondent, so expect a fair few from that area in the coming weeks.

The Piper

The Piper, Sale Moor, Cheshire

A typical modern estate pub in a not especially run-down area, that appears to have been closed for some years.

The Studley Arms

The Studley Arms, Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire

A substantial 1930s cottage-style roadhouse with a pair of black-and-white gables now tucked away behind a high fence. The M40 bypassing this stretch of the A40 was opened in 1967, so can hardly be blamed for the pub’s decline.
