White Lion, on Breech Road at Marlpool
Public Houses

This wonderful advertisement from 1888 lists just about every pub in Heanor, Langley Mill, Loscoe and Marlpool. There’s even a couple (The ‘Hands and Hearts’ and the ‘Prince of Wales’) which have not yet been identified.

The photographs below are just a few of those pubs – but where was the ‘Crystal Palace’, the object of the advert?

The ‘Crystal Palace’ was the name given to the large greenhouses at the back of the White Lion, on Breach Road at Marlpool. These were used for numerous events at the end of the nineteenth century.

The photo gallery below shows pictures of various other pubs of the area which are no longer with us.
