An ornate Victorian pub at the entrance to Warwick station, now an an advanced state of dereliction.
A compact 1930s pub in the Wortley district on the south-west side of the city, built in 1931 for the local Melbourne Brewery, later taken over by Tetley’s. The StreetView image dates from 2014, but fortunately it has since reopend and still merits a place on CAMRA’s National Inventory of historic pub interiors.
Another large and once smart 1930s roadhouse on the A56 between Helsby and Chester, a couple of miles down the road from the Wheatsheaf, and from the same school of design. Now Neptune Home Accessories & Furniture.
Despite being in a busy area close to the University and Manchester Royal Infirmary, with many student flats nearby, this former Greenall’s pub wasn’t able to survive. It has since been demolished.
An impressive late Victorian or Edwardian tiled pub with a curved frontage, in an industrial area on the north-eastern side of the city. Apparently the building is now used as a sauna.
An old pub with a more modern facade, situated on the eastern fringe of the town centre near the station. I’m not aware of any connection between the famous Victorian scientist and King’s Lynn.
A small corner pub with a rounded facade in a back street near the station, formerly called the British Oak. I stayed the night here on a CAMRA trip many years ago. It has since been converted to flats.
A large inter-wars mock-Tudor Hyde’s pub in an area of council housing on the south side of the city. I’m not sure whether it is permanently closed or just boarded up “for the duration”, although it has given the impression of living on borrowed time for quite a white. Just down the road from the Green End, which has been demolished since I wrote that blogpost and the site redeveloped for housing.
