The Barge & Bridge

The Barge & Bridge, Atherstone, Warwickshire

A free-standing pub with a hint of Tudor styling in its architecture, situated between the canal and the railway. Since the photo was taken it has been demolished. It was originally called the Westwood House Hotel.

The Queensferry Hotel

The Queensferry Hotel, Queensferry, Flintshire

An impressive inter-wars pub next to the old bridge on the original main road into North Wales. Part of the bridge is just visible to the right of the pub. Like the Hawarden Castle across the river, this must once have attracted plenty of trade from trippers caught in the notorious traffic queues.

The Office

The Office, Bradford, Yorkshire

A substantial stone-built free house in a run-down industrial area on the north-west side of the city. The name – which presumably is not the original – offers an obvious opportunity for the excuse “Sorry, but I had to stay late at the office.”

The Victory

The Victory, Bolton, Lancashire

A monumental redbrick pub in an area of Victorian terraced housing on the north-west side of the town. Originally built by Magee Marshall, and later passed into the hands of Greenall Whitley. It is now planned for conversion to flats and retail use.

The Wellington, Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire

A small stone-built roadside pub on the steep hill linking Sowerby Bridge with Halifax, which was closed following a fatal fire.

The Boar's Head

The Boar’s Head, Ewloe, Flintshire

A white-painted pub that looks to be in Greenall’s livery, standing at a junction on a now bypassed stretch of the former A55. It is planned to be demolished and replaced with yet another block of flats.

The Pump Room

The Pump Room, Halifax, Yorkshire

A substantial stone-built corner pub on a road junction near the railway station on the south side of the town centre. The image dates back to 2014, and it It has subsequently been demolished for a planned redevelopment scheme that never happened, leaving the site still vacant. The building to the left was formerly a garage and not part of the pub.

The Beaufort Arms

The Beaufort Arms, Monkswood, Monmouthshire

A roadside pub on the A472 between Usk and Pontypool, which was CAMRA South & Mid Wales Pub of the Year in 1990.

The Rising Sun

The Rising Sun, Leeds, Yorkshire

A handsome Victorian Grade II listed former National Inventory pub, on the west side of the city in an area where most of the surrounding housing has been demolished. The interior has been damaged by fire and flooding, and little of the original fittings probably now survive. The current owner has made repeated applications for planning permission to convert it into flats.

The Bull

The Bull, Redbourn, Hertfordshire

A cream-painted pub in the busy High Street of this commuter village, still displaying traditional McMullen’s livery.

The Jolly Miller

The Jolly Miller, North Warnborough, Hampshire

A Victorian roadside mock-Tudor pub that in recent times became the “Chilli Pad” Indian restaurant, which has also now failed.
