The Flouch Inn, Stocksbridge
The sad demise of the Flouch Inn –
Demolition of this pub has been on the cards for a while now. Oout in the Wilderness of the Pennines, the Flouch is called so because its former name of The Plough became weathered and Plough Became Flouch with the loss of a serif or two.
The demolition will make way for houses; an entirely unsustainable location, and the canabalisation of what could be a great pub as part of the chain of cyclist stops found in this area.
Also being demolished is
Silkstone Working Men’s Club –
Not so pretty…but still a meaningful building
