On the corner of Leadhouse Road, originally just the corner building, the Paxton
Arms extended in to the house next door sometime in the 1870’s. Pictured here in
the early 1950s the pub was demolished in the 1960’s to make way for the Lawrence
Hill roundabout, St.Lawrence Church on Lawrence Hill can be seen in the distance,
as can the Prospect Tavern on the corner of Fleet Street. The Paxton Arms was named
after Sir Joseph Paxton the famous architect and gardener (1803 - 1865) and designer
of the Crystal Palace building at the World’s Fair in London 1851.
