Wollaton Arms

Picture source: Eddie Dexter


The Wollaton Arms was situated on Trowell Road. This pub has now been demolished with new housing built on the site.
This was built originally as a Tennants pub called the 'Balloon Hotel'.  This was a reference to a road junction about 200 yards away known as Balloon Crossroads, falsely thought to be the launch point of a gas balloon in the early 19th century but probably named after some cottages on the crossroads with strangely shaped roofs.
