The Travellers Inn, Attercliffe, Sheffield
Unique pub in Sheffield torn down:
This pub, which dates back to around 1780 (although the existing building looks much more recent) has been empty now for 10 years, and internally has been destroyed by vandals.
Sadly, this industrial corridor of Sheffield has lost many of the dozens of pubs that would refresh the working class daytime population.
The frontage, part arts and crafts, part art deco, baffles me. I have not seen a pub look like this before. Yet it is not the architectural merit that makes its loss lamentable. As ever, the loss of a pub symbolises our decreasing demand for the company of other people.
