Visited alone on a miserable January morning................. I used to drink here way back before i knew any better, this was one of the more popular pubs in Stockport back in the day and has sadly been closed for at least a couple of years now

I wasn't really expecting too much here as i knew the downstairs was modern but the upsatairs holds a few nice features which i probably have not done justice.

There is some evidence (a mattress, book, macdonalds crap) to suggest there has been someone staying here but i don't know if it's recent, maybe a smack head but i didn't see and needles etc about.

Thieves have been in though as floorboards are up in places after the pipes, so plenty of nails etc sticking up (carefull :eek:)

The White Lion originates from the 15th century.
In 1815, during the battle of Waterloo, the landlord fired a cannon to inform the town’s people of the battle’s victories. A ‘Wife Sale’ took place here in 1831 by William Clayton who sold his wife for five shillings to a J Booth; she was handed over to the purchaser with a halter round her neck. The building was rebuilt in 1904 in the Art Nouveau style.
