This pub has been derelict since 2003 (google street view from 2009 shows it largely unchanged – a few more letters on the sign than there are now perhaps).

This is the fourth pub to close on this high street, which at one time would have provided a half-decent drag within the Pudseyan nightlife.

The local townscape will be dramatically altered when this building is lost. There is cyclical succession at play in places like this; the old buildings are lost, character is diminished, the area becomes ripe for development, market demands means more old buildings are lost.

Another one bites the dust.
