The Former Jinglers/Fox & Hounds
The Former Jinglers/Fox & Hounds
About 4 miles east of Ashbourne on the A517, near Bradley, was a pub with two names. The side of the sign facing towards Ashbourne said The Fox & Hounds whilst the other side said The Jinglers. A former coaching inn, it closed in 2000 and is now a private residence.

Local historian Wendy Whitbread suggests that the Jinglers name came about as the pub used to stand at the end of a track coming from a lead mine. Ponies were employed to transport the lead and the leading pony wore a bell so that its jingling sound would alert workers in the bar to the fact that it was time to deal with the laden beasts. She also suggests that when the inn became tied to Offiler's Brewery the new owners wanted to change the name to the Fox & Hounds and that the double sign was a compromise to keep the locals happy.
