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 it’s always worth a moment to lament when an English pub is erased to make way for some drab housing.
