The Corby Candle

The Corby Candle is a well known public house in Corby. It is named after a large chimney at the Corby Steel Works, which had red flames at the top, giving it its name. It is said the Corby Candle pub was the first place many Scots moving to Corby went once they got of the bus from Glasgow.

The Candle is currently closed for refurbishment. As I walked past today the tile plaque by the door was just about to be covered by hideous beige plastic cladding. At least the plaque will still be there under the cladding to be unearthed another day...
