The Admiral Jervis

The Admiral Jervis, Oakamoor, Staffordshire

An attractive late Victorian or Edwardian mock-Tudor pub in a leafy setting off the main road in the picturesque Churnet Valley. It was only brought into pub use in 1982, but was closed by 2016 when the StreetView image was taken. It was one of several pubs in the area named after locally-born naval hero Sir John Jervis, who was made Earl of St. Vincent.

The Bowling Green

The Bowling Green, St Helens, Lancashire

A functional flat-roofed pub on the south side of the town close to St Helens Hospital. There were plans in 2017 to convert it to multiple-occupancy housing but, perhaps surprisingly, it has subsequently reopened, which is a rare good news story.

The Oakwood

The Oakwood, Leeds, Yorkshire

An impressive 1930s roadhouse in the Roundhay district on the eastern side of the city, which was converted to a drive-thru McDonalds before the advent of StreetView.

The Railway Tavern

The Railway Tavern, Crowborough, Sussex

A four-square street corner pub belonging to Shepherd Neame, unsurprisingly situated opposite the town’s railway station, still open on StreetView. A name change from the more distinctive Welcome Stranger obviously failed to revive its fortunes.

The Haygate

The Haygate, Wellington, Shropshire

A large inter-wats pub on the west side of the town where planning permission has been granted for redevelopment of the site as 18 flats despite concerns about parking provision.

The Lion & Lamb

The Lion & Lamb, Leeds, Yorkshire

A monumental 1930s roadhouse on the main York Road to the east of the city. It was demolished before the advent of StreetView and replaced by an Aldi supermarket.

The Highwayman

The Highwayman, Threapwood, Staffordshire

A large pub on the road between Cheadle and Alton Tower that appears in the past to have had a reputation as a destination venue. It was already closed in 2009 and has since been redeveloped into a row of cottages that appear to utilise the main pub building. This is a rather spooky account from 2009 of exploring the derelict building.

The Sutton

The Sutton, Great Sutton, Cheshire

A characteristic Sixties or Seventies estate pub on the western side of Ellesmere Port, with the distinctive angled window design popular around that time. A planning application has been submitted to demolish it and replace it with a Co-op convenience store. It was originally called the Marquis, which from the reference in the news report was presumably what it continued to be called locally.

The Perdiswell House

The Perdiswell House. Worcester

A large Harvester pub-restaurant on the main A38 Droitwich Road heading north out of the city. Planning permission has been applied for, although so far refused, to demolish it and replace it with a 78-bed care home.

The Furnham Inn

The Furnham Inn, Cnard, Somerset

A white-painted pub on the north side of the town whose owners have been trying without success to sell it since 2013. Although it stands on a main road, the Google cameras have not been that way since 2009, so it still shows as open on StreetView.

The Kiln

The Kiln, Leeds, Yorkshire

Another modern estate-style pub in the shadow of tower blocks on the north side of the city centre, still bearing John Smith’s livery.

The Dog & Partridge

The Dog & Partridge, Standish, Lancashire

A small four-square pub just to the west of the crossroads at the centre of the village. The premises have now been taken over by a gunsmith’s, and the sign fittingly reads “Dog & Cartridge”.

The Cock’n’Bull

The Cock’n’Bull, Derby

A large inter-wars pub in the Sinfin district on the southern side of the city, it was originally built in 1934 as the Sinfin Hotel, and later renamed as the Saxon. Demolished between 2012 and 2014, there are now plans to build a Sikh temple on the site.

The Gate

The Gate, Leeds, Yorkshire

A post-war estate pub in the typical location next to a parade of shops. It has since been demolished but the site remains vacant. It is located close to the Fellmongers in the Seacroft district on the eastern side of the city.

The Flying Horse

The Flying Horse, Leek, Staffordshire

A small roadside pub that for many years was a familiar landmark on the outskirts of the town alongside the main road to Ashbourne. It is to be demolished to make way for five houses.

The Lord Nelson

The Lord Nelson, Leeds, Yorkshire

Another pub in the Holbeck district on the south side of the city. It was demolished in the early 2010s, but the site remains undeveloped.

The Jester

The Jester, Tunstall, Staffordshire

A large pub dating from 1957 on the main road between Tunstall and Biddulph, which has recently been bulldozed. The site is to be redeveloped for up to 14 houses.

The Levers Arms

The Levers Arms, Darcy Lever, Lancashire

A distinctive white-painted building raised above the road in a village to the east of Bolton. Planning permission has been granted to replace it with a three-storey block of eight flats.

The Spotted Cow

The Spotted Cow, Leeds, Yorkshire

An unusual small white-painted gabled pub set back from the road in the Holbeck district on the south side of the city. It closed in 2007 and has since been replaced by a functional four-storey block of flats.

The Lion

The Lion, Wellington, Shropshire

An attractive white-painted pub set back from the road on the north side of the town. Right opposite another pub of similar appearance called The Park. There are now plans to turn it into assisted living accommodation. It was still open when the most recent StreetView image was taken.

The Compton Arms

The Compton Arms, Leeds

A large inter-wars pub in the Harehills district on the north side of the city, at one time rumoured to have the largest floor area of any pub in Britain (although I suspect this is doubtful). It was demolished around 2006, pre-StreetView, and the site remains vacant today.

The Station Hotel

The Station Hotel, Ashbourne, Derbyshire

An impressive Edwardian pub-com-hotel on the west side of the town centre opposite the long-closed station, that is currently in the process of being converted to flats.

(My own photo)

The Fellmongers

The Fellmongers, Leeds, Yorkshire

A neat estate pub in the Seacroft district on the eastern side of the city. It probably dates from the 1950s, looking at the surrounding housing, but the general style would be equally at home in the 1930s. It has since been redeveloped into a two-storey apartment block.

The Fiddle i’th’Bag

The Fiddle i’th’Bag, Burtonwood, Lancashire

A substantial free-standing rural pub on a back road north of Warrington, that was once known for its collecton of antiques and curios. It closed before lockdown, and there are now plans for it to become a Pesto Italian restaurant.

The King William

The King William, Earl Shilton, Leicestershire

A white-painted Charles Wells pub in the main street of this small Leicestershire market town that once boated its own eponymous building society. There are plans to build six houses on the former car park, with the pub itself to be converted into flats.

The Britannia

The Britannia, Leeds, Yorkshire

A handsome corner pub in the Holbeck district on the south side of the city, unusually featuring a tower on the side frontage. Obviously the trendy lettering failed to save it. It has since been converted into a convenience store called Kasa.

The Pool Inn

The Pool Inn, Wallasey, Cheshire

A prominent corner pub on a busy road junction close to the Birkenhead docks. The site has been vacant for over ten years, but there are now plans to build an apartment block.

The Old Red Lion

The Old Red Lion, Burnley Lancashire

An elegant Victorian pub with a curved corner frontage situated in a pedestrianised area. A latter-day rebrand as “Craft” failed to save it, although the much smaller Sun Inn to the left appears to be still trading. There are now plans to replace it with a coffee shop, offices and flats.

The Nook

The Nook, Leeds, Yorkshire

A plain-looking 1950s estate pub in the Farnley district on the west side of the city. It did actually reopen after this view was taken, but is now closed again.

The Robin Hood

The Robin Hood, Stretford, Lancashire

A very large Edwardian redbrick pub, formerly tied to Whitbread, on the west side of Stretford town centre, which has largely been obliterated by the Arndale Centre development and is now devoid of pubs apart from a couple of micros.

The Boar’s Head

The Boar’s Head, Barton, Lancashire

A former Mitchell’s pub on the A6 north of Preston, which closed in 2016 and was demolished in March this year, despite efforts by the local community to purchase it. The site is now to be redeveloped for housing.

The Gate

The Gate, Sheffield, Yorkshire

The second of two closed pubs next to each other on the A61 to the north of the city. This one is a functional post-war design. Both have now been replaced by a giant Sainsbury’s. The photo below shows them both together.

The Travellers

The Travellers, Sheffield, Yorkshire

A stone-built Victorian pub that is the first of two closed pubs next to each other on the A61 to the north of the city. Both have now been replaced by a giant Sainsbury’s that rather dominates the scene.

The Restoration

The Restoration, Tilehurst, Berkshire

A neat inter-wars pub on the Oxford Road to the west of Reading. Local residents have been invited to comment on plans to demolish it and replace it with 18 apartments.

The George IV

The George IV, Leeds, Yorkshire

A typical post-war estate pub in the Hunslet district on the south side of the city. After a troubled history, it fell victim to an arson attack in 2018 and has since been demolished. Note the sign still saying “Open under New Management” even though there’s a gaping hole in the roof.

The Cheshire Midland

The Cheshire Midland, Hale, Cheshire

A four-square inter-wars pub in the centre of prosperous Hale next to the station, which was originally built by the Cheshire Midland railway company. It was abruptly closed pre-Covid by Humphrey Smith, allegedly due to failing to enforce Samuel Smiths’s mobile phone ban, and has never reopened since, although it was only boarded up relatively recently.

The Odd Fellows Hall

The Odd Fellows Hall, Shipley, Yorkshire

A distinctive three-storey early Victorian pub dated 1840, situated on the south side of the town just down the hill from the Branch. Note the house next door with conical turrets in the style of a French chateau.

The Stanley Arms

The Stanley Arms, Upholland, Lancashire

A roadside pub in a West Lancashire village notable for the main road through it negotiating a hairpin bend to descend a steep hill. It closed just before Covid struck, and after being occupied by squatters it is now to be converted to housing.

The White Horse

The White Horse, Morley, Yorkshire

A stone-built pub standing at an angle to the road on a steep section to the south side of the town centre. It has now become Kasa Rosa restaurant, but the building itself is largely unchanged.

The Blacksmith’s Arms

The Blacksmith’s Arms, Renishaw, Derbyshire

A plain-looking pub standing below the level of the road at a rural crossroads south-east of Sheffield. Planning permission has been granted for it to be demolished and replace by a house and shop.

The Punch Bowl

The Punch Bowl, Hurst Green, Lancashire

A roadside pub in a rather out-of-the-way location between Longridge and Clitheroe. After some years of closure, it was illegally demolished in early 2021, but its owners have now been ordered to rebuild it. It remains to be seen whether that will actually happen.

The Branch

The Branch, Shipley, Yorkshire

A landmark pub on a sloping site commanding a road junction on the south-west side of the town. It has since been demolished, but nothing has been built in its place.

The Silver Jubilee

The Silver Jubilee, Peterborough, Northamptonshire

A modern estate-style pub on the north side of the city, that was still open in 2009, but doesn’t seem to have made it to 35 years, and was in a very bad state by the time it was pictured in 2018. It was demolished in early 2022 to make way for a school.

The Ovenden Cross

The Ovenden Cross, Halifax, Yorkshire

A four-square, stone-built pub on a steep incline on the main Keighley Road on the north side of the town. It has now become Minibugs Nurseries.

The White Horse

The White Horse, Churton, Cheshire

A four-square Edwardian pub in a prosperous village south of Chester close to the River Dee. The asking price has been reduced by £150,000, but it is being suggested that the property would be suitable for alternative use.

The Waterwheel

The Waterwheel, Wigan, Lancashire

A remarkable pub occupying most of the ground floor of a thirteen-storey block of flats on the east side of the town centre. The block is still there, but is now protected by a gate and fence.

The Royal

The Royal, Shipley, Yorkshire

A four-square, brick-built pub with tall chimneys facing some functional early post-war flats on the south-east side of the town. It has since been replaced by a plain terrace of four modern houses.

The Dog & Partridge

The Dog & Partridge, High Lane, Cheshire

A substantial pub on the main A6 road through this well-populated village a few miles south-east of Stockport. For some years it was a Brewer’s Fayre, before making the journey down through the dining pub brands to end up a Crown Carvery.

The Ash Brow

The Ash Brow, Hddersfield, Yorkshire

A small stone-built street-corner pub alongside the main Bradford Road on the north side of the town. Now the Mumbai Spice Indian restaurant.
