    Default Large Pub, South Yorks - Feb 13


    Iím not sure if this will technically count as derelict as there are people living on site, but for the most part it certainly has the feel of being abandoned. If the moderators think this belongs in a different section feel free to move it.

    A friend of mine is occupying the site for a company who supply ďsecurity by occupationĒ to derelict sites. He gets somewhere to live for a menial monthly rent and the property owner gets someone on site to deter vandals and thieves. For this reason, I have tried to keep the identity and location of the pub a secret, as my friend would not appreciate unwanted attention. If you recognise this pub, please keep its identity to yourself and do not attempt access.

    I donít know much about the history of the place, but it was once a busy town centre pub, with hotel rooms upstairs. Itís been closed a few years now and will be stripped out and remodelled as flats in the near future.

    (Sorry for the quality of some of the photos, I only have a cheap pointíníshoot camera and the light inside wasnít great.)











    Down to the cellar:










    Strangely thick door, we donít know if the room used to be a cold store or to store valuables, or something:


    The barrels have been left behind, all empty!


    Back up to the ground floor, and the beautiful main staircase next to the bar:










    Up to the top floor:






    Surveyors have exposed the steel I-beams:




    That lovely staircase window from outside:

    LOL yeah, it is a bit like that! I photographed the most "derelict" rooms, the people living there have slightly nicer ones, with furniture and stuff plus free water and electric, so he has fan heaters on the go 24/7. But yes, it's not exactly a luxury apartment, even for the tiny amount he pays!

    The 'thick' door was the door to the hotel's strongroom - quite a common feature when this place was built. People in those days tended to travel with far more bulky valuables than they do today. The peppercorn rent is a way of getting around various legal niceties that rear their ugly heads in situations such as this.

    I thought the building had the look of a former bank about it, perhaps in a past life before becoming a pub? difficult to know without the history
