The Railway

The Railway, Pudsey, Yorkshire

An unusual small mock-Tudor roadside pub, now converted for residential use. It takes its name from a long-closed branch of the Great Northern Railway running through the southern fringes of the town.

The Farmers Arms

The Farmers Arms, Cheadle Heath, Cheshire

A large Edwardian pub situated a couple of miles west of Stockport town centre in the angle of two main roads. It was put up for sale by owners Greene King in late 2019 and never reopened after the first lockdown. The large car park makes it a prime redevelopment opportunity. Surrounded by extensive areas of housing, it was the only pub for half a mile or more in any direction. (Photo courtesy of John Clarke)
