This distinctive, three-storey brick building is the former Central Hotel. Now closed and boarded-up, the Central had been described by the local branch of CAMRA as ‘one of the rougher pubs in the region’. It was built in c1920. A ‘Mr Derbyshire’ was recorded as the landlord in 1922. A ‘Mr Derbyshire’ also ran the pub in the 1940s. In the mid 1980s, the Central Hotel was renamed The Royal Charter, but reverted to its original name 10 years later.
