The Wiltshire Lamb

The Wiltshire Lamb, Gosport, Hants

A redbrick street corner pub with an unusual and possibly unique name, in this rather off-the-beaten-track Hampshire town.

The Leaking Boot

The Leaking Boot, Cleethorpes, Lincs

An imposing inter-wars pub-cum-hotel on the main road between Grimsby and Cleethorpes. The unusual name comes from a popular Victorian statue.

The Norfolk Arms

The Norfolk Arms, Marple Bridge, Cheshire

An attractive pub, formerly tied to Bass, in the centre of a prosperous commuter village. It is perhaps surprising that a pub cannot succeed in this location. My own photo – it still shows as open on StreetView.

The Chequers

The Chequers, Lower Higham, Kent

An unexpectedly large and impressive late-Victorian redbrick pub in a small North Kent village near the Thames estuary.

The Oddfellows Arms

The Oddfellows Arms, Bury, Lancashire

This late-Victorian pub looks quite appealing on StreetView, but the recent photo shows it closed and since then it has been razed to the ground.

The Crown

The Crown, Bury, Lancashire

A rather nondescript redbrick pub at a crossroads on the main Rochdale Road heading East from Bury town centre.

The Pack Horse

The Pack Horse, Bury, Lancashire

An impressive corner pub on the main Manchester road out of Bury, that from the look of the signage has been given a modern-style makeover. Still shows as open on StreetView. The Staff of Life in the background is still trading.

The White Hart

The White Hart, Dawley, Shropshire

This small white-painted pub in a rural oasis in the middle of Telford New Town is caught actually in the process of demolition.

The Brown Cow

The Brown Cow, Bury, Lancashire

A former Enterprise Inns pub that shows as open on StreetView but has now been converted to a funeral directors’.

The Seven Stars

The Seven Stars, Wigan, Lancashire

An impressive redbrick Edwardian pub, formerly tied to Thwaites, that in the past has featured in the Good Beer Guide.
