Red Lion


The Red Lion was situated at 69 Chestnut Lane. This Victorian pub was closed and demolished within a week in July 2012, by a developer. It was not listed, but according to locals, the old skittle alley had a preservation order. The developer paid a small fine.

The pub was totally intact on 12th July 2012 but on Friday 13th it was certainly not their luckiest day because the demolition team moved in and, despite a quick response from the Police following a 'phone call', the demolition was allowed to continue. The last landlord moved out within hours the week before and the pub group who owned the pub were not very forthcoming concerning the future, especially for a pile of rubble. Several houses have been built on its site.
