Old Pack Horse Leeds

A fundamental port on the Westgate Wobble pub crawl, the Old Pack Horse has been closed for a few years now, and although a robust and attractive building, the developer sees no value in this and wants to get 5 houses on here.

Sadly much of the building is only 1 story, however, the 2 story portion of the building could certainly be integrated into a development.

And just like that, you’ve managed to capture a piece of history in perpetuity.

Interestingly, the New Pack Horse pub is just over the road. There is definitely something very Yorkshire about this perfunctory pub naming. Without both pubs present, the irony is lost. And irony theft is criminal around these parts.
