The Crispin Inn, Ashover
The Crispin Inn, Ashover
Now a Marston's pub, it has a history that their website hardly mentions. Crispin may come from the battle on St Crispin's Day in 1415 when local men returned victorious from Agincourt. From Wikipedia there's more history, as follows.

"Ashover was the scene of a confrontation between the Royalists and the Roundheads during the English Civil War in the 17th century. The Roundheads, short of ammunition, demolished the windows of the church and used the lead to make bullets. They also reduced nearby Eastwood Hall to ruins; all that can be seen today are the ivy-clad remains. Royalists slaughtered livestock and drank all the wine and ale in the cellars of Eddlestow Hall while the owner Sir John Pershall was away. Job Wall, the landlord of the Crispin Inn public house, refused entry to the army, telling them they had had too much to drink. But they threw him out and drank the ale, pouring what was left down the street. Outside, affixed to the front wall of the pub is a signboard with a history of the inn."
