    History
    Built in 1845 and originally called “The Green Man†this pub has come to be known as a landmark Northamptonshire building. It is mostly known for its bizarre location and for a long run of over 100 years as “The Old Red Houseâ€. The pub changed its name for a third time to “Henry’s of Hannington†after the old landlord decided to commit suicide by hanging himself on the third floor room. Henry’s of Hannington finally closed its doors for the last time in 2003, ironically after winning the “Pub of the year†award the very same year.

    The Explore
    Went for a local mooch by myself one evening after work. This was the first stop, the second being a KTFC revisit. Entering was no problem at all as the place is completely derped. It was a nice little explore in the middle of nowhere, no chance of any secca out here, just the smell of fresh manure to keep you company. There seems to be quite a few pieces of old furniture and a few personal belongings left behind, but most of it has been damaged by thugs and vandals. It looks like the squatters have recently taken residence at some point. Such a shame see this once glorious public house in such disrepair. It is due for demolition in the near future.

    I think it stands a good chance, so long as they have some Greene King on tap, theres no reason why it shouldn't get my vote. Its got a nice beer garden with plenty of hawthornes to sting your arse, its nicely cooled in the summer as it doesn't have a roof in some places, theres never a queue at the bar and of course the door is open 24/7. Not a bad pub at all :D

    Yes, it was a little weird seeing that doll. Its the first time I've ever come across it. It really got an uneasy stare aswell, lol
