Report - Four Abandoned Pubs in & around the Midlands – December 2019

Derelict pubs probably offer the least to the nosey bastard as they’re usually stripped of anything interesting, smashed to bits or full of needles. But here’s four derp pubs from recent trips in and around the midlands area during December.


The Horse & Jockey, Whitchurch, Shropshire

834925


This pub originally started life as three little cottages and apparently the oldest parts date back to 1640 and were expanded in the 17/1800’s. It allegedly closed due to structural issues after a Halloween party in October 2007.

Nice sketch of the pub during its less derelict years

Pleasent!

Up in the attic

834924


834928



The Gate Inn, Warsop, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire

834938


Constructed in the 19th century on the site of an even earlier pub. It’s been closed since summer 2017 and looks set to be replaced with a new Co-op store. Small amount of vandalism and the usual ripped up floorboards upstairs.

Shout out to @Gsxrwayne who thought it was a good idea to open the chest freezer and release the stench of two year old rotting seafood.

Cheshire Lounge / Nags Head, Little Bollington, Altrincham, Cheshire

834913


I really struggled finding much on this one, other than it was called The Nags Head for a while and then before closure known as the Cheshire Lounge. The place is absolutely battered, unsurprisingly as Google Earth shows it surrounded by traveler caravans.

834927


Boat..?

834920


834919


834921


834926


834930



The Miners Arms, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

834914


Again, sparse info other than it being a very long standing public house along King Street near the Fenton / Longton boarder which kept catching fire after closure. The upstairs is still there but the staircase is long gone!

Thanks for looking!​

Pubs are usually very meh, but youve got some really cool snaps there. That canoe! really, wtf lol. Its nice when pumps and bar are in tact and signage is still there. Most pubs are so wreaked, and the rate of closure is ridiculous. But nicely done :thumb

I can tell you a lot about the Cheshire lounge I lived there and worked there so sad to see it like that! Great video I’d love to go and see it now!

Wide open, so you may as well give yourself a guided tour and reminisce!

I’m actually thinking of going! It’s used to be a food pub with a kids play area (the flooded area) the nags head then 3 business men took over and refurbed it spent thousands on it and turned it into the Cheshire lounge a restaurant/cocktail bar/night club huge outdoor smoking area and bar but unfortunately it just never took off they tried all sorts but wrong location I left not long after and I guess eventually they ran out of money And they ran it to the ground and must of shut the doors would of been around 2011! No idea about the mattress’s I know gypsies we’re set up camp there last year so I guess that’s why it’s utterly smashed up!

I was expecting each one to be way more trashed than they were, all in all I'd say these looked like pretty interesting and worthwhile explores!
Some of those pint prices were very nostalgic...
