Full Description

The Butchers Arms, Hands Road, Heanor and Loscoe, an early 19th century building. Map evidence confirms that the building was not present in the late 18th century, as it is not shown on a map of 1791, although the frontage of the plot was occupied at that time by two small buildings. (1) The Butchers Arms is mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1891, but is not named in White's Directory of 1857. This may be because it was called something different in 1857, or it may not have been in use as a Public House at this time. (2-3) A photograph of The Butchers Arms taken in c1891 shows the building as having 8 over 8 pane sashes (with 4 over 8 pane sashes on the top floor), instead for the current four-pane sashes. (4) From the National Heritage for England: 'SK 44 NW HEANOR AND LOSCOE HANDS ROAD, Heanor (north side) 6/28 Butchers Arms II Public House. Early C19 with later additions and alterations.
