Are those tiles bottle green, Andrew? Or perhaps dark brown. I wonder.

This is such a sad, sad picture, all the windows broken, the final insulting blow to a very unhappy ending for this pub which would have been bustling with darts matches, and juke boxes and billowing fag smoke and the smell of beer on soggy bar mats,and graffiti on the toilet walls, no doubt, but all signs of a healthy hopping nightlife...all come to an end.

I bet this corner has been a receptacle for illegal toilet use since its closure too. I can just imagine it as the sort of corner which gets utilized in such a manner. Poor old pub!

Yes it's another victim of the recession. The tiles are black. I had to ask a passing old lady for it's original name.

Thanks Giles - bit of a miserable subject really, but well worth recording I think. Thanks for your comments Giles.
