The Jubilee inn, june 2017

Recommended Posts

 We'd set off initially to find an old mill that i'd found on google maps. Unfortunately this was a no go. But it just so happened that i'd parked in the carpark of a boarded up pub so, being in the mood for quick one i had nosey round and what do i find? Yep, an open door. So how could i refuse.
 The Jubilee inn was built in the 1840s in a gothic style. Unusually tho, the pub didnt start off here, which explained why i never found the cellars (there aren't any). With the advent of the railways ,in 1963 the pub found itself in the path of the proposed route. Rather than demolish it altogether, it was moved, brick, by brick to the opposite side of the road. It must have taken some effort as the hillside behind had to be blasted back to provide space. Why they never dug a new cellar i dont know, but it appears the space is still there behind the bar for the door. I suspect that the effort taken to move the pub was in part due to the pubs location at the entrance to the jubilee colliery. The miners would surely have needed a replacement drinking hole so why not just move the old one.
Its present future is uncertain, a bid to get it listed, failed and planning permission has been granted to build several houses on the land
