The Clayton Arms

The Clayton Arms, Adlington, Lancashire

A white-painted pub near the village centre in the apex of two roads. The White Bear across the road still appears to be thriving.

The Sir John Warren

The Sir John Warren, Loscoe, Derbyshire

A solid brick-built estate-style pub with a feature bow window that replaced an older pub of the same name and site in 1969, but now appears doomed itself. The pub takes its name from local naval hero Sir John Borlase Warren - there is a pub bearing his full name in Nottingham.

The Corner House

The Corner House, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

Although it looks like an old pub, in fact this High Street pub only opened about fifteen years ago having previously been an estate agent’s and solicitors’ offices. It was a short lived venture, and has now been closed for the last three years with no sign of life.

The Lime Kiln

The Lime Kiln, Breedon-On-The-Hill, Leicestershire

Situated in a historic village a couple of miles south of East Midlands Airport, this old pub closed a number of years ago and is now used a office/storage for a business centre in the adjacent 17th century barn buildings (seen on the right), although the pub signage has been retained.

The Matilda Tavern

The Matilda Tavern, Sheffield, West Riding of Yorkshire

A backstreet pub in a very tatty and run-down condition, surprisingly close to the city’s main railway station.

The Castle Inn

The Castle Inn, Tutbury, Staffordshire

A small pub named after the famous castle in this attractive large village. Although closed for a number of years and now used as flats, its general proportions still clearly indicate its pub origins.

The Engine Inn

The Engine Inn, Donisthorpe, Leicestershire

A creamwashed roadside pub in a former mining village, backing on to attractive countryside, as can be seen on the StreetView image.

The Plough & Harrow

The Plough & Harrow, Small Heath, Birmingham

A large pub on the main Coventry Road with a pair of distinctive onion-dome turrets, now sporting an unusual green boarding-up scheme. The changing ethnic mix of the local area has probably been a major factor in its decline.The poster is advertising an event in July 2008.

The New Inn

The New Inn, Newhall, Derbyshire

A redbrick pub in a former mining area that has been closed for about ten years, but has been put to good use as a community centre and café.

The Bell & Brewer

The Bell & Brewer, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

A redbrick pub in the sharp apex of two roads, with a traditional core and a later, more ornate extension in the corner. Originally known as the Rose & Crown, the name was changed when a one-way system introduced in the 80s necessitated the installation of the bell in front of the pub to protect it from turning lorries. It has been closed since about 2006.

The Vine

The Vine, Stockbridge, Hampshire

A sizeable three-storey inn on the main street of this prosperous town on the River Test noted for its trout fishing. Given the amount of money about locally, it surely can’t be long before it is reopened.

The Crown

The Crown, Castle Gresley, Derbyshire

A recently closed village pub currently surrounded by fencing and apparently undergoing some kind of residential conversion. It looks quite smart on StreetView and has new decking outside.
