You are quite right Ian, there is a cult of people who are over reactionary and over sensitive.I was watching a news programme on the T V this week and a pair of ladies black shoes appeared. The desig

So that's the problem solved. The photos are of two different Newcastle Arms, even though the Evening Post imply it's the same building. Typical of the NEP these days, printed in Birmingham and writt

Well of course the whole area including Newcastle colliery was owned by the Duke hence the Newcastle Arms opposite where the pit used to be.

Half the soddin' county was owned by the ruddy dooks...Newcastle, Portland, and the rest...I wonder how they managed to nick all that land off the poor peasants.

One of the reasons Newcastle had his castle burned out was because he opposed the poor having any say in the running of the country.And yet they had the nerve to name the working mans pubs after them.

I remember drinking in the Corner Pin but can't remember where it was? Also drank in a tiny pub called Ye Hole in Ye Wall but can't remember much about that either.

Corner Pin became Tammy then Disney Store on the corner of Parliament St and Clumber St opposite the entrance to the Victoria Centre. It closed in 1989.

There's a Hole In The Wall on North Sherwood St still going strong.

Theres mention of a Black Horse on Coventry Rd, Bulwell . Also a transfer of a licence in 1892 of a Black Horse on Stoney St , Nottingham but that doesn't look anything like that street .

May be some more forgotten pubs on this list of licence transfers from 1892

That wasn't always the case with pubs named after members of the aristocracy. I think I'm right in saying that the Marquis of Granby actually set some of his old soldiers up in the trade when they retired from the army, and many are still named in his memory.

I asked on here quite a while ago if anyone had a photo of the Colliers Arms that stood at Babbington Pit at Cinderhill. Nobody had one of the pub but I wondered if since then one had been found? Strange that there doesn't seem to be one on the lost pubs website either, reference to it but no photo.

#40 Catz. The only picture that has the old Colliers Arms on it that I know of is the one below, from the Nuthall Local History Society, and published in the book The Great Northern Railway in the East Midlands, by Alfred Henshaw. It is not very clear, but better than nothing. I have scrawled an arrow at where it used to be. A chap I knew told be he remembered it, and said that it was just above the entrance to the pit looking towards Nuthall. Incidentally, the pit is in Nuthall not Cinder Hill - the old boundary marker used to be on the cross-roads.

 

The photo is very interesting, and was taken, it is noted, as circa 1928. The replacement Colliers Arms and the pithead baths were later built on the piece of open ground just before the railway over-bridge. The original line out of the pit yard and over the A610 can be seen curving away to the right. These old disused lines and the crossing gates were still there after the war - we used to play there. The other line out of the pit went to Cinder Hill Junction where it split into two. One on the LMS line to Basford Crossing (used today by the tram), and the other, as can be seen, curving up the gradient to the LNER line to Basford.

Passed The Wheatsheaf today at Bobbers Mill and a notice has gone up saying " Site aquired for Development" any guesses as to what it may be?

Another Tesco/Sainsbury/ Morrisons local . Bit of a funny location for new houses.
