The Woodman

The Woodman, Hazel Grove, Cheshire

Once a small, unspoilt pub with extensive wood panelling, this was greatly extended and knocked through around 1990, but has now bitten the dust along with the Grove opposite. The Anchor to the left is still trading.

The Cock & Bull

The Cock & Bull, Sinfin, Derbyshire

A large postwar pub in distinctive yellow colouring near to the Rolls-Royce factory on the southern outskirts of Derby.

The Jubilee

The Jubilee, Shaw, Lancashire

A striking Gothic-styled building on the main road between Shaw and Milnrow, which must once have been an appealing destination pub.

The Crown

The Crown, Denbigh

A substantial hotel in a pedestrianised area in the town centre, which has been closed and boarded for several years now. It looks less derelict on the 2009 StreetView image.

The Ram Inn

The Ram Inn, Derby

A four-square street-corner pub just off the city centre, whose proximity to the next-door Woodlark can’t have done it any favours.

The Appleton Arms

The Appleton Arms, Widnes, Lancashire

Originally known as the Angel & Elephant, this substantial redbrick purpose-built pub appears to be in the process of conversion to residential use.

The Gate

The Gate, Smethwick, Staffordshire

Now being used as a builders’ merchant’s, this three-gabled pub set back from the road miraculously reopens as you step closer towards it.

The New Inn

The New Inn, Balsall Heath, Birmingham

A big Victorian main-road pub with a striking colour scheme stemming from the combination of red brick and red paint. The corner sign points to the side door for the “New Inn Business Centre”, while the remainder has planning permission for restaurant conversion.

The Double Dutch

The Double Dutch, Aldbrough, East Riding of Yorkshire

A substantial inter-wars pub in a coastal village that is rapidly being eroded by the sea. Go a couple of hundred yards further along the road and it comes to an abrupt end. Is this a unique pub name?

The Old Heavygate Inn

The Old Heavygate Inn, Sheffield, West Riding of Yorkshire

This looks like an old pub that was later surrounded by suburban development on the north-west side of the city. There’s a blogpost about its demise from Wee Beefy here.
