The Lord Lyon

The Lord Lyon, Rusholme, Manchester

A distinctive semi-circular street corner pub, now reflecting the changing population mix of the area by having become the “Manchester Multi-Cultural Centre”.

The Old New Inn

The Old New Inn, Brierley Hill, Staffordshire

A small bay-windowed pub next to what looks like a closed supermarket in the centre of this small Black Country town.

The Spotted Dog

The Spotted Dog, Bordesley, Birmingham
A street-corner pub on the east side of the city, which before its closure was renamed “TJ’s”.

The Pilot

The Pilot, Coventry, Warwickshire

Yet another magnificent inter-wars Midlands roadhouse-cum-estate pub on the north side of Coventry.

Edit 17/04/17: I'm informed that this pub was reopened and is still very much in business. See here. The second photo shows the pub as it is now. It's always good to see a previously closed pub brought back to life.

The George & Dragon

The George & Dragon, Cheadle, Cheshire

An imposing former coaching inn, once tied to Greenalls. Refurbishment and reopening has been promised for some time but has so far failed to materialise.

The White Cock

The White Cock, Blythe Bridge, Staffordshire

A substantial roadside pub, pictured after having been turned into the Monsoon Indian restaurant, but nevertheless still ending up closed and boarded. Now demolished and redeveloped as housing.

The Hipp

The Hipp, Harpurhey, Manchester

A typical modern Holt’s estate pub, still open on StreetView. Magnificent sky on the photo!

The Old Blue Bell

The Old Blue Bell, Bury, Lancashire

An imposing Holt’s pub in the angle of two roads, dating from 1899, that has now fallen victim to demographic change in the surrounding area.
