The Wheatsheaf

The Wheatsheaf, Dunham-on-the-Hill, Cheshire

A characteristic large 1930s roadhouse, once owned by Greenall’s, on what was the busy main road between Warrington and Chester before being bypassed by the M56. In times past it was a very smart and popular pub with a good reputation for food. The StreetView images suggest that it closed some time between the summers of 2018 and 2019.

An inter-wars cottage-style pub on a busy road junction in South-East London. There are plans to demolish the pub and build a a Lidl supermarket on the site. The aerial photo on the news report reveals that the pub is in fact deceptively large.

The Black Horse

A street corner pub with pointed doorway and gables, situated just to the north of the city centre, that has now been converted into flats.

The Dog

The Dog, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire

A mock-Tudor pub close to the town centre that went through a variety of incarnations, including a spell as an O’Neill’s. Although the StreetView image shows it closed, it has more recently been taken over and reopened by Black Country Ales.
