The Bird In Hand, Garforth

Estate pub to be pulled down for housing:

This 20th century pub lies at the heart of a housing estate, and was envisaged as a hub in this suburban extension to Garforth. Its not a particulary historic pub, or of any architectural merit, but nonetheless, the monotony of cul-de-sacs and dormer bungalows benefits from a public building tieing everything together.

And its always worth a moment of lament when an English pub is erased to make way for some drab housing.
