The Green Man

The Green Man, Mursley, Buckinghamshire

An attractive small inter-wars pub in a rural village just outside Milton Keynes, which closed suddenly during 2021.

The Haddon Hall

The Haddon Hall, Leeds, Yorkshire

An impressive inter-wars former Tetley’s pub set back from the road on the west side of city, now repurposed to a variety of retail uses. When open, it featured in several episodes of the TV drama series “The Beiderbecke Tapes”.

The Old Blue Bell

The Old Blue Bell, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire

An old three-storey pub, still in Mansfield livery, overlooking a roundabout on the west side of the town centre. There are now plans to redevelop the building to provide 15 studio apartments.

The Gamecock

The Gamecock, Farnley, Leeds, Yorkshire

A substantial inter-wars pub with a hint of Brewer’s Tudor, standing in the angle of two main roads on the west side of the city, that has now become a Heron Foods store.

The Cherry Tree

The Cherry Tree, Peterborough, Northamptonshire

A small, white-painted pub in an area of older housing on the south side of the city. There are plans to – you guessed it – redevelop the site as flats.

The John Bull

The John Bull, Trowbridge, Wiltshire

A plain modern pub on a post-war housing estate on the west side of the town. Originally tied to local brewers Wadworth’s, but presumably it no longer fitted the desired profile of their estate.

The Bagot Arms

The Bagot Arms, Erdington, Birmingham

Another impressive inter-wars roadhouse commanding a roundabout on the north-east side of the city, this time in the neo-Georgian style.

The Horse & Lion

The Horse & Lion, Sheffield

A distinctive modern pub in an elevated position next to the tram route on the south side of the city, which apparently once appeared in an Arctic Monkeys video. It has since been converted to a convenience store

The Wheatsheaf

The Wheatsheaf, Heacham, Norfolk

An inter-wars Brewer’s Tudor pub in a coastal village just south of Hunstanton, that has since been converted to a Tesco Express.

The Red Lion

The Red Lion, Bucknall, Staffordshire

A substantial free-standing pub in a rather out-of-the-way location on the eastern fringes of Stoke-on-Trent. Local residents are not happy with plans to replace it with sheltered accommodation for young adults with “complex needs”.

The White Stag

The White Stag, Leeds, Yorkshire

An unusual-looking pub, rather reminiscent of a chapel, set back from the road in the Sheepscar district on the north side of the city centre. It has since been demolished, but plans to replace it with flats fell through and the site is now just used as a car park.

The Brierfield Hotel

The Brierfield Hotel,Bolton, Lancashire

A large detached mock-Tudor pub in a leafy area on the north side of the town. It has since been demolished and there are plans to build a mosque on the site.

The Travellers Rest

The Travellers Rest, Leekbrook, Staffordshire

A large inter-wars roadhouse a couple of miles south of Leek on the main road to Stone. This isn’t really a major arterial route, and it’s difficult to understand why such an impressive pub was ever built in this semi-rural location.

The Malvern

The Malvern, Leeds, Yorkshire

A modern pub on the south side of the city in the Beeston district with a distinctive stone surround to the door, since converted to a convenience store.

The Red Lion

The Red Lion, Sutton, Staffordshire

A redbrick roadside pub close to the Shropshire border on the A519 between Eccleshall and Newport, still displaying a Banks’s sign. Although not actually boarded up, the car park has been fenced off.

The Hark to Rover

The Hark to Rover, Kirkstall, Leeds, Yorkshire

Although this appears like a typical parade of estate shops, looking back to the 2008 StreetView image shows that the ground floor was in fact entirely occupied by the pub, clearly from the same design school as the Fernlea. The most recent view suggestes it has been converted to flats during the current year.

The Stirrup

The Stirrup, Woodchurch, Cheshire

A main road pub in the centre of the Wirral, opened in 1966 by Bass and most recently operated by Sizzling Pubs. The site is planned to be redeveloped as retirement apartments.

The Swillington

The Swillington, Swillington, Yorkshire

A pub with an unusual castellated facade in a village east of Leeds where as many businesses as possible seem to bear the village name. Now the Indian Lounge restaurant.

The Bridge Tavern

The Bridge Tavern, Southampton, Hampshire

A handsome inter-wars Brewer’s Tudor pub on the north-west side of the city, photographed by StreetView on a beautiful, sunny Spring day in 2015. Unsurprisingly, there are now plans to demolish it and build a four-storey block of flats in its place.

The Queens

The Queens, Leeds, Yorkshire

A substantial, free-standing white-painted pub with distinctive arched windows on the south-east side of the city. The trendy moniker of “The Queens @ Stourton” clearly wasn’t enough to save it.

The Silver Jubilee

The Silver Jubilee, Heaton Norris, Lancashire

A modern estate-style pub in an area of new housing redeveloped from old terraced streets. It opened in 1977 to coincide with the Jubilee and thus managed to last 44 years. It closed earlier this month and owners Robinson’s lost no time in boarding it up and removing their signage.

The Station Hotel

The Station Hotel, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire

A large pub next to the still operational station, with an ornate Jacobean-style extension that appears to date from the Edwardian period. It is now on the “wrong side of the tracks” from most of the town centre.

The Sportsman

The Sportsman, Cliffsend, Kent

Pictured under threatening skies, a small white-painted roadside pub overlooking the sea near the defunct Pegwell Bay hovercraft terminal. Although not boarded up as such, the blackboard outside states “Closed Since 2017/04”.

The Morning Star

The Morning Star, Barnsley, Yorkshire

A four-square, flat-roofed inter-wars pub, distinguished by ornate stone door surrounds, standing in an elevated location on the south side of the town. In its latter years it was acquired by Lancashire brewery Thwaites.

The Roath Park

The Roath Park, Cardiff, Glamorgan

A large stone-built street-corner pub on a busy shopping street on the north side of the city. There are plans to demolish it and build a block of flats on the site.

The Fytton Arms

The Fytton Arms, Oldham, Lancashire

A typical post-war pub on the Fitton Hill estate on the south side of the town, now looking forlorn and roofless.

The Wakefield Arms

The Wakefield Arms, Wakefield, Yorkshire

A cream-painted three-strey pub next to Wakefield Kirkgate, the less busy of the city’s two stations. It has been in a derelict and steadily deterioriating condition for many years.

The Knot

The Knot, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire

Built in 1911, a free-standing, white-painted pub on the main shopping street with some interesting architectural details. It has since been demolished but nothing so far put in its place.

The Kingsholme

The Kingsholme, Nuneaton, Warwickshire

A handsome mock-Tudor pub just outside the town’s inner ring road, still bearing Ansell’s livery. Originally called the Coach & Horses. Be careful not to jump the red light!

The Lord Cardigan

The Lord Cardigan, Leeds, Yorkshire

A functional modern pub standing high above a busy road junction on the western side of the city. The large unused grassed area must have increased the attraction of the site for redevelopment as the housing which it has since become.

The Victoria

The Victoria, Urmston, Lancashire

Situated at the rear of a modern shopping precinct, you would hardly think this had ever been a pub, but it certainly was, replacing an imposing Victorian building of the same name in the 1960s. It its latter years it went through various incarnations as Boogie Piano Bar and Stage One Bar.

The Chellow

The Chellow, Bradford, Yorkshire

A distinctive 1930s Art Deco style pub in a suburban area to the west of the city, now converted to residential use.

The New Inn

The New Inn, Weymouth, Dorset

An old but much extended pub on a main road and close to new housing estates on the north side of the town. It is to be demolished to allow for the development of yet more housing.

The Old Cottage Tavern

The Old Cottage Tavern, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire

Originally the British Oak, this backstreet pub near the Town Hall was run for a period as the brewery tap for the Old Cottage Brewery.

The Fernlea

The Fernlea, Leeds, Yorkshire

A large three-storey post-war estate pub in the Farnley district on the south-west side of the city (see where they got the name from?), that looks more like a parade of shops. Since demolished and the site redeveloped for housing.

The Swan

The Swan, Bucklow Hill, Cheshire

An old pub that later became a Brewer's Fayre and had a Premier Inn added on to the back. It was a familiar landmark on the busy A556 road that connected Manchester to the M6, but once that was bypassed the amount of passing trade will have dramatically declined.

The Masons Arms

The Masons Arms, Retford, Nottinghamshire

A three-storey pub on the eastern fringe of the centre of this North Nottinghamshire market town, with an impressive stone-clad ground floor frontage.

The Oyster Catcher

The Oyster Catcher, Leasowe, Cheshire

A modern pub built in 1961 by Liverpool brewery Higson’s, in a large housing estate at the northern tip of the Wirral peninsula, which closed in 2016. Renamed as Brambles in its final years, as shown in the photo.

The Riverway

The Riverway, Nottingham

A postwar pub, situated in an area of redeveloped housing between the city centre and the Trent bridge. Originally built by local brewery Shipstones, but later taken over by Samuel Smith.

The Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales, Bradford, Yorkshire

A large inter-wars pub formerly tied to John Smith’s, situated on the main Harrogate Road on the north-east side of the city.

The Junction

The Junction, Hulme, Manchester

A distinctive flat-iron pub in the sharp angle of two roads to the south of the city centre, still bearing Hydes’ livery. The new housing opposite obviously hasn’t been enough to save it.

The New Inn

The New Inn, Hunslet, Leeds, Yorkshire

An ornately-decorated stone-faced late Victorian or Edwardian pub on the busy Dewsbury Road on the south side of the city, now converted to an Asian supermarket.

The Byrkley Arms

The Byrkley Arms, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire

A street corner pub on the north-west side of the town near the town hall and station. On some earlier StreetView iterations it is called the Berkeley Arms, but the street it is on is Byrkley Street. The name comes from the site of a now demolished stately home to the west of the town, that once belonged to the Bass family and is now used as the St George’s Park National Football Centre.
