The Horse & Jockey

The Horse & Jockey, Saddleworth, West Riding of Yorkshire

A purpose-built pub opened in 1937 alongside the main A62 road from Oldham to Huddersfield – from the look of the signage by one of Bass’ predecessor companies. Now derelict and at the mercy of the elements, it appeared in the 1984 Good Pub Guide and was still trading in the early 1990s. There is an epitaph for it here. Only a mile or so from the Floating Light – most of the roadside pubs on this route have now gone.

  4. This is a monument to modern society where people break into your property,burgal it then set fire to it. Having first battered one pet dog which fortunately managed to escape but left the second dog to die in the flames. I wonder if the perpetrators sleep well at night. I do hope not,
