A PUB with links to an historic battle has been put on the market.
The Crimea, on Cross Lane, Primrose Hill, is one of the oldest in the area.
Now Enterprise Inns, which owns the pub, have revealed it is on the market.
A spokeswoman said: "I can confirm it is up for sale. But it is still functioning as a pub. I cannot comment any more than that."
The Crimea, which backs on to Primrose Hill Cricket club, was built in 1793, as a cottage farmhouse.
At the time, it was the only dwelling of its kind at Steel Common, the former name of Primrose Hill.
It became a pub under landlord Thomas Hamer in 1856.
Mr Hamer had been a soldier in the Crimean War and gave the pub its unusual name.
Mr Hamer had returned to the area to marry a farmer's daughter.
Soon after opening his new business, he was forced to close it because of a lack of space.
However, he solved the problem by joining the pub onto his own house, which had been built next to the pub.
The venue was soon open for business again and Mr Hamer remained landlord for 48 years.
He had a replica of a Crimean cannon made and stood it outside the pub.
The weapon was fired twice a year - once on Mr Hamer's birthday and again on November 5 - Bonfire Night.
Mr Hamer died on November 2, 1904 and left the pub and cannon to his sister.
