The Victoria

The Victoria, Urmston, Lancashire

Situated at the rear of a modern shopping precinct, you would hardly think this had ever been a pub, but it certainly was, replacing an imposing Victorian building of the same name in the 1960s. It its latter years it went through various incarnations as Boogie Piano Bar and Stage One Bar.

The Chellow

The Chellow, Bradford, Yorkshire

A distinctive 1930s Art Deco style pub in a suburban area to the west of the city, now converted to residential use.

The New Inn

The New Inn, Weymouth, Dorset

An old but much extended pub on a main road and close to new housing estates on the north side of the town. It is to be demolished to allow for the development of yet more housing.

The Old Cottage Tavern

Originally the British Oak, this backstreet pub near the Town Hall was run for a period as the brewery tap for the Old Cottage Brewery.

The Fernlea

The Fernlea, Leeds, Yorkshire

A large three-storey post-war estate pub in the Farnley district on the south-west side of the city (see where they got the name from?), that looks more like a parade of shops. Since demolished and the site redeveloped for housing.

The Swan

The Swan, Bucklow Hill, Cheshire

An old pub that later became a Brewer's Fayre and had a Premier Inn added on to the back. It was a familiar landmark on the busy A556 road that connected Manchester to the M6, but once that was bypassed the amount of passing trade will have dramatically declined.

A distinctive flat-iron pub in the sharp angle of two roads to the south of the city centre, still bearing Hydes’ livery. The new housing opposite obviously hasn’t been enough to save it.
