A large white-painted pub with a conservatory extension in a rural location just outside Wednesfield and Bloxwich close to the M6 motorway. Still open on StreetView.
A substantial Holt’s pub on the Ashton Old Road that within my drinking memory received an extension to cater for burgeoning trade, but is now closed and boarded. The section in the foreground of the picture appears to be undergoing conversion for alternative use.
An imposing 1930s pub in the Moderne Style, complete with tower, once well-known as a live music venue. In its day it was considered an example of enlightened contemporary pub design. Now in the process of redevelopment as retirement apartments.
A large white-painted canalside pub on the eastern edge of the town. Pictured on a damp, miserable day, this one looks particularly sad and forlorn and seems to sum up the plight of pubs in Britain today.
Originally called the Earl Grey, this inter-wars pub was designed for the Carlisle State Management Scheme by architect Harry Redfern in an Art Deco style rather than his usual Arts and Crafts idiom. It is now, as the StreetView image shows, a Taekwon-do school.
A white-painted pub on a sharp corner in the Peak District. Robinson’s signage now removed but not actually boarded up as such. It was originally called the Duke of Devonshire but gained its later name after it was up for sale by the Devonshire estate for two years in the 1950s until someone made a bid for it.
Apparently it has been bought by new owners who plan to reopen it as an agricultural supplies store with small attached bar.
