A pub which helped The Rolling Stones on their road has been added to a list of protected buildings in Sutton.
The Winning Post was among 170 buildings and landmarks that have been added to the Local List, that helps to identify and preserve structures with local significance, after an appeal by Sutton Council.
The Sutton High Street pub, was where the Rolling Stones were spotted early in their careers playing a gig, when the venue was named the Red Lion.
Councillor Jayne McCoy, a council spokesman on planning, said: “The high number of nominations that we’ve received shows how proud Sutton residents are of the area’s heritage.
“The nominations for the Local List highlight the borough’s unique and diverse history, from its rural beginnings to its innovative modern buildings such as the BedZED sustainable development.”
