This pub was sited at the crossroads where  Engine Bank and Daws Gate intersect.  It came into existence as a beerhouse sometime in the 1840's, started by Thomas Newton and his wife Deborah née Eason. After closure, the property was disused for a period of time, but then became a private dwelling.  Then, sadly, it was destroyed by fire in November 1980, and a bungalow, called 'The Engine', built on the site and still there today.
