Chapel House

The Chapel House was situated at 62 Chapel Market. This pub closed in 1969 and was subsequently demolished to make way for a Littlewoods store. It is now used as an Iceland store.

I remember the pub as a child, we were fascinated by the beautiful mosaics leading to the entrance, and terrified of the asp about to bite Cleopatra. I think the mosaics must have been of Antony and Cleopatra, I think I can remember The Battle of Actium??
My dad loved it too and I used to be sure that I remember him being quite upset when the pub was demolished because the mosaics were smashed up. Iíve recently met someone else who knew it even better than me and he says the mosaics were sold to an American. Can anyone confirm either story please?
