The Rams Head

The Rams Head, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

Yet another unassuming street-corner local in an area of terraced housing across the railway from the town centre. Currently in the process of being turned into retail units.

The Miners Arms

The Miners Arms, Fenton, Staffordshire

Situated on the main road between Fenton and Longton, this pub is still very much open on StreetView, although up for sale, but since then has obviously experienced a rapid decline.

The Park Farm Hotel

The Park Farm Hotel, Allestree, Derby

A surprising find in a leafy suburb, a 1960s brutalist concrete bunker that has now been closed for the best part of a decade.

The Wheatsheaf

The Wheatsheaf, Winchester, Hampshire

A long-closed pub in the city’s southern suburb of St Cross, retaining a distinctive legend along the side of “Ale and Stout Drawn from the Wood” which it is believed originated from the Eldridge Pope brewery.

The Sportsman

The Sportsman, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A small mid-terrace local just outside the town centre. Still looks reasonably smart on StreetView, but now converted to a private residence.

The Strutt Arms

The Strutt Arms, Milford, Derbyshire

An impressive stone-built pub-cum-hotel situated near where the main A6 road road crosses the River Derwent north of Derby. It closed earlier this year, and is currently up for sale at £375,000 freehold.

The Foresters Arms

The Foresters Arms, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire

A relatively modest inter-wars pub in the domestic architectural style of the period, situated to the south of the city centre in an area of retail and business premises.

The Boathouse Inn

The Boathouse Inn, Stapenhill, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A modern pub in a secluded spot on the banks of the River Trent known as The Dingle. It closed as a pub in 2007 and a subsequent attempt to revive it as an Indian restaurant did not prove successful. The StreetView car could only get close enough for a glimpse.

The New Queen’s Head

The New Queen’s Head, Winchester, Hampshire

A modern estate pub, possibly 1950s, that is still going on StreetView but has now been bricked up behind its windows.

The Masons Arms

The Masons Arms, Swadlincote, Derbyshire

A substantial redbrick pub commanding a busy junction on the former A50, with prominent BASS lettering on the corner. Plans have been submitted to turn the site into yet another convenience store.

The Copper Hearth

The Copper Hearth, Stapenhill, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

Another modern suburban pub that has fallen victim to Tesco Express. On StreetView it appears to be thriving, with a recently smartened-up exterior, but this did not stop it closing in March of this year.

Ye Olde Nelson

Ye Olde Nelson, Salford, Lancashire

An ornate late Victorian or Edwardian pub on Salford’s run-down Chapel Street. Note the variation in spelling – is it “Old” or “Olde?”

The Nelson Inn

The Nelson Inn, Winshill, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A backstreet pub in an eastern suburb of the town, that closed around 2005 but still looks surprisingly spick-and-span. The building plot has outline planning permission for ten houses.

The Beer Barrel

The Beer Barrel, Derby

Originally called the Football Tavern, this substantial three-storey corner pub is very close to the location of Derby County’s old Baseball Ground.

The Blue Bell

The Blue Bell, Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

A pub that has been closed for a number of years and was for a while used as a women’s refuge. It retains its distinctive moulded bell design with the name arching over it.

The Horseshoe

The Horseshoe, Little Hulton, Lancashire

A big modern pub standing on the crossroads at the centre of this large village on the periphery of Salford.

The Labourers Union

The Labourers Union, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A small, tatty-looking back-street local in an area of densely-packed terraced housing. Now converted for private use.

The Harrington Arms

The Harrington Arms, Alvaston, Derby

A modern estate-style pub in a suburban shopping precinct, actually still looking quite smart on StreetView.
