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.
