The Golden Lion Inn (Memorial) - Cannon Hill Park - Birmingham

A derelict former pub that was moved from Digbeth to Cannon Hill Park in 1911 called The Golden Lion.

 

It is believed that it dates back to the 16th century. It has 18th century elements such as the pub sign.

 

It is Grade II listed.

 

It is thought that it was the Clergy House and School of the Guild of Deritend. It was taken down brick by brick and moved from Digbeth to Cannon Hill Park.

 

The building has structural decay and is unsound. The council is thinking of moving it back to Digbeth as part of the Eastside regeneration.
