Situated at the junction of Main Street and Field Lane (the latter leading to Blidworth Bottoms) the Black Bull Public House and Bistro dates back to the C17th. In 1878 it became the property of Shipstones and this partnership continued until 1978 when Shipstone & Sons - brewers between 1852 and 1991 - were taken over by Greenalls of Warrington. It seems that several transfers of ownership followed until autumn 2012 when it came back into private ownership. This is 'almost' the highest point in the village although this road (the B6020) passes the Parish Church - which is situated at an even higher point - before it descends towards Ravenshead. Most of the village is located at lower levels, behind the photographer.
