Northampton's pubs then and now: See if you recognise the town's favourite locals in these vintage photos
Hundreds of Northampton pubs have come and gone over the decades - and some have stayed exactly the same.
Author Dave Knibb spoke to the Chronicle and Echo this week about his new directory of Northampton's historic pubs - featuring hundreds of classic pictures of the town's favourite watering holes. Here are some of the town's pubs in the old days and how they look today.
5. Black Lion, aka The Wig and Pen, St Giles Street, 1968
Once known as The Plasterer's Arms, the Black Lion was popular with actors from the Derngate theatre. But it rose to prominence when former Saints Captain Mr Edward Shadrack Dunkley became landlord in 1901 and ran the pub for 44 years.
