A modern corner pub in the middle of a large housing estate with no nearby competition which, perhaps surprisingly, ended up being acquired by Oxfordshire pub company (and former brewery) Brakspear's.
A 1930s roadhouse-style pub which I believe replaced an older pub in the village centre a few hundred yards to the south. Once a notably plush and successful food-oriented pub. The road it stands on used to serve as an informal bypass of Tarporley but lost its importance once the proper bypass was opened in the late 1980s. It is still open on the StreetView image taken in 2009.

A typical modest inter-wars Brewer’s Tudor pub, still bearing Greenall’s livery, in an area to the east of St Helens that has seen extensive housing redevelopment. Note the chap walking his two black dogs in the foreground of the picture. One of a number of closed pubs in Parr referred to in this post by Merseyside Pub Guide.
A big 1930s suburban pub right opposite Worcester Park station in a location that surely is not lacking in potential trade. Still open on StreetView, it is reported here to have been occupied by squatters.
A massive pub still partly in Greenalls’ livery, hidden away in a maze of modern housing redevelopment. It’s perhaps surprising this one actually survived so long. Renamed from the Great Western to avoid confusion with another pub.
A four-square stone-built pub on a cut-off former section of the A6 just north of Whaley Bridge, now in the process of being converted to residential use.
This is the pub that I wrote had the smell of death about it.
