A substantial free-standing pub right in the centre of this former mining town.
An imposing three-storey stone-built pub with Venetian windows on the main A58 between Ripponden and Sowerby Bridge. Currently reported as being tied up in planning appeals due to the owners wanting to demolish the listed cottage at the rear as part of redevelopment.
A large free-standing pub on a main road, whose frontage looks to date from the 1950s, but may originally be older. It is scheduled to be demolished for a new road scheme. A sumpter is an archaic name for a pack horse.
A substantial pub-cum-hotel with an unusual name, owned by Greater Manchester family brewers J. W. Lees, in the centre of this small North Wales market town, which was once notorious as a traffic bottleneck on the A55.

A typical large 1930s redbrick roadhouse. It faces on to Wessex Way and looks as though it once enjoyed access from the main road – taking this away may have been the reason for its demise. There are now plans to build an 84-bed care home on the extensive site.
