The Hare & Hounds

The Hare & Hounds, Bradford, Yorkshire

An attractive old stone-built pub situated opposite Horton Bank Country Park on the west side of the city. Once tied to Webster’s, it is now described as a forlorn spectacle.

The Printers Arms

The Printers Arms, Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire

A pub with an unusual Georgian-style frontage, set back from the road in the straggly main street of this small Lancashire town. There are now plans to convert it to a ground-floor retail unit with flats above.

The Dee Miller

The Dee Miller, Chester

A neat single-storey post-war estate pub on the north side of the city. The right-hand half has since been converted into a Heron Foods store, but it is hoped to reopen the remaining section as a pub.

The Three Tuns

The Three Tuns, Tamworth, Staffordshire

A neat inter-wars pub on the west side of the town centre in the shadow of a couple of tower blocks of flats. It is described by CAMRA’s WhatPub site as having been “one of the few pubs in town to retain a traditional bar and lounge layout”.

The Griffin

The Griffin, Wigan, Lancashire

An imposing redbrick pub with sandstone detailing, standing on the north side of the town on what was once the main road to Preston. The lettering shows that it was built by the Oldfield Brewery in 1905. It is now in a sadly decrepit state, with the ground floor boarded up, and broken upstairs windows with blinds flapping in the wind. Photo courtesy of SPBW North Irish Sea.

The Hare & Hounds

The Hare & Hounds, Middleton, Lancashire

A pub with a handsome Edwardian frontage situated on the Rochdale Road just north of the town centre and close to the historic Olde Boar’s Head. It has been closed for many years and now appears to be used as offices.

The Bromford

The Bromford, Birmingham

Another handsome inter-wars Birmingham roadhouse standing on the Outer Ring Road on the eastern side of the city. It has since been demolished and replaced by a much larger block of flats with retail units on the ground floor.

The Tempest

The Tempest, Bradford, Yorkshire

Another post war pub on a council estate in Bradford with a very modernist looking extension on both sides of the pub. It suffered a fire in 2011 which completely gutted the building, Although the pub was still popular around the area and trading well, unfortunately the extent of the damage was too great and it has since been demolished.

The English Rose

The English Rose, Luton, Bedfordshire

A street-corner pub at the back of the station, once a CAMRA favourite noted for selling a large number of ever-changing guest ales. Planning permission has now been granted for conversion to residential use.

The Fairmile Inn

The Fairmile Inn, Edinburgh

A classic 1930s Art Deco roadhouse on the main road south out of the city just inside the City Bypass. It was closed by 2008, so cutting the drink-drive limit in Scotland cannot be blamed for its demise. It has been replaced by a distinctive modernist wooden-clad building housing Craigdon Mountain Sports.

The Nab’s Head

The Nab’s Head, Samlesbury, Lancashire

A small rural pub east of Preston close to the ABInBev brewery at Samlesbury, commanding an excellent view over the surrounding countryside. It was previously a Thwaites tied house.

The Bricklayers Arms

The Bricklayers Arms, Middleton, Lancashire

A small street corner pub just to the east of the town centre with an impressive tiled facade advertising Gartside’s Ales, now used by Domino’s Pizza.
