Photo taken from our day out on a narrow boat. Shame the pub has recently closed.

Before it closed down now it will start to fall down if nobody takes it soon.
I see that newly built building across the canal as a sign saying it for rent on now the one used by Encams.

For a (nearly) town centre pub, this place should of been a gold mine, i had my 30th party here and loved it. Amazing how some lesser known pubs continue to survive whilst the ones you would expect to thrive shut down.

Brocklander its about Location Location Location and this place is in the wrong one for the people who frequent public houses now a days.
Maybe a few years back it would be packed with couples having a drink and then a stroll a long the canal bank like it was at the Navi in Gathurst but time have changed since then.

Such a shame, beuatiful building inside as well as out. I have done many a wedding in this building. If a pub like this goes down, what chance has the rest. I wonder if this will end up as flats?
