Trawling around the net I found this old postcard/photo.

First assumption is that it's the Carlton to the east of Nottingham, but I've looked at old maps and can't place it. So maybe it's Carlton in Lindrick, or Carlton on Trent ? or some other Carlton. There's a pub sign on the right which has been scratched out on the original, which would have been the best help with location.

Looking at the pub sign it looks like it could say "The Fox Inn" ?

There is a Fox Inn at Carlton in Bedfordshire ( which I've never heard of).

Hard to relate it to modern pics though unless the pub is to the right out of shot ?

You solved it :dry: That's the one, and looking at Streetview it's clear.

The top view shows the pub still there, and moving further along the chimneys are still the same. So it's nowt to do with Nottingham at all.

DAVIDW came up with the answer in his first post. It's on High Street.

Well done on your research David, and thanks CliffTon for giving us the picture to ponder over. I have been racking my brains all morning trying to locate it in my memory. Needless to say I had no luck. I almost convinced myself it was the Carlton I knew long ago.

I don't think Carlton, Nottingham ever looked that rustic, Carni. :-)
