Two Sheffield pubs

The Arbourthorne Hotel in Sheffield has had an application for demolition submitted against it:

Not an ancient building by any means but I thought it worth documenting another loss of a pub. Built within an array of red brick housing for a mining community, these pubs/working mens’ clubs are a clear continuation of Victorian utopianism and philthanthropy in the wake of TItus Salt, Robert Owen et al.
Another pub in Sheffield soon to be lost is the Mason’s Arms:

Another pub that has lost its relevance as the surrounding industry waned. Quite striking quoining and a generally robust building that could be key to a regeneration in this area, but alas it is presumably just an asset in the portfolio of a brewery.
