Former Talbot Hotel and Pub, Batley
A very tired looking old pub looks to be lost soon in Batley;
Drinking Establishments often sprung up in industrial areas, to be populated by thirsty mill workers. Yet with the demise of industry, these public houses have become obsolete. It always ignites my imagination when I come across an old pub in a derelict former industrial area and consider how it would thrive.
There wont be too many of these pubs left now, which is a shame, because a resurgence in niche pubs that are removed from the bustle of the town centre are slowly becoming popular. Sometimes people like to drink beer nestled within a landscape of iron and brick.
