Woodman Inn, Hebden Bridge

Application to demolish the long abandoned Woodman Inn pub at Charlestown just outside Hebden Bridge:

This pub has now been in a state of dereliction for at least 10 years. Standing on the road to the Moors, when the culture of drinking and driving (rightly) met its demise this location would have proven to be logistically awkward.

Still, with the cultural draw of Hebden Bridge but a mile away, I’m sure a skilled publican could have reanimated The Woodman Inn. Other pubs of this disposition have thrived.
