Description:This seventeenth century building stands on Colliery Road at Brereton Slade, near Rugeley. From around 1800 it had become the local public house, serving miners from nearby Brereton Collieries. When the last colliery closed in 1960 the Hollybush survived another few years, finally closing in 1965. The owners, Bank's Brewery of Wolverhampton sold this grade 2 listed property to Mr and Mrs. J. Leadbeater, and it flourished as an antique shop into the 1990s. In 2002 a new owner bought and renovated the property reinstating the thatched roof.
