SUN    Ketley Bank ???
Exact position not clear, the 1861 and 1871 census enumerator's routes indicate that the Sun was near the top of the present day Sunnyside Road close to it's junction with Main Road. Would appear to have closed by 1871.
"---thence by a public house known by the sign of "The Rose and Crown"; thence all that part of Coalpit-bank on the east and south east of the lane leading to a public house known by the sign of  "The Sun Inn": thence along the lane leading to the "Grange"----"
