Fountain Inn, Heaton
Application to demolish a long term vacant pub in Bradford:

April was a busy month in Bradford for conservation officers, this being the first of many threatened buildings to have an application to demolish levied against it.
The building is unremarkable, but the setting is an unspoilt Victorian townscape, with stone setts on the ground and narrow coursing of stone masonry on elevations (Greenmore rock perhaps?)
The pub alone can not be saved on grounds of heritage significance, but it will be to the detriment of the sense of place in this Bradfordian suburb when a cavity remains after this building falls.
Not many places like this remain. One fewer in the next few months.
