The Cock Inn

Summary

On the edge of the pretty little village of Hanbury in East Staffordshire, The Cock Inn stands in an elevated position overlooking the Dove Valley with spectacular views towards the Weaver Hills in Staffordshire and the hills of the Derbyshire Dales.

As pubs go, The Cock Inn isn’t old, but it’s a pub with heart, history and a mistaken identity.

When the dump went up on 27 November 1944, The Derby Telegraph reported that “The old Cock Inn was practically demolished, but the tap room remained intact and the landlady began serving with the remaining supplies and glasses as soon as possible. Above, a bed protruded crazily from the wall of a shattered bedroom.”

The dump was RAF Fauld, a store for 44,000 tonnes of explosives, which accidentally detonated causing catastrophic damage to Hanbury village, the Cock Inn and surrounding farms.

But some things never change, and The Cock Inn at Hanbury is still all about people and the community.

It’s about laughing out loud with friends, spending time with family, eating seasonal locally sourced food, hosting your next party and enjoying a quiet drink.

There are three great walks that begin and end at The Cock Inn, which is a great excuse to pop in for lunch and a pint. For The Hanbury Walk Map and other East Staffordshire walks see here… Walk Maps – DISCOVER EAST STAFFORDSHIRE
