Grotto, Cromford Court. (c) Old Maps .
This brilliantly named old pub, the Grotto, was next door to the better known Fatted Calf, tucked away on Cromford Court off Corporation Street. It was on the same side as Brown's Chop House and across from the Bull's Head Hotel, Blue Boar Hotel and Slip Inn. There's nothing else known about the Grotto, but Cromford Court, of course lost underneath the Arndale Centre, became well-known as the flats which were built on top of the shopping centre.
