Newlands Inn

Newlands Inn, Golden Valley

The Newlands Inn closed in 2007.
 
The Newlands Inn was a good example of a 19th century country Inn, admittedly with 20th century extensions, so good in fact, that on the 25/5/1988 English Heritage declared it a listed building, Grade 2 ( building ID 79099). Unfortunately as the local employment declined with the local coal mines closing as did other industries, the hamlet lost much of its population and fell into disrepair, after being boarded up and suffering roof damage, possibly during the harsh winter conditions.
Around 7:40pm on the 6/8/2011 the Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service were called to attend a blaze at the Newlands Inn. It was so severe that the road was closed off. Although the Derbyshire Police will not speculate, arson has not been ruled out & a joint investigation with the fire service is in progress. A point of interest is the fact that the owner of any listed building is not allowed to demolish it unless consent is given through the relevant planning authority
