Church Inn, 1902
The coronation of Edward VII was set for 26th June 1902.
On Werneth Low, a bonfire was built.
Two days before the ceremony, the King was taken ill and the actual coronation postponed until 9th August.
The bonfire went ahead as planned as did celebrations at Godley Hill.
This was the scene outside the Church Inn.
The last time I saw any celebrations at the Church Inn was in 2006 when England were playing in the World Cup.
Later that year it closed down and reopened as Tylers but before long it became another dead pub.
Recently it has opened again under the name Route 66.
