    Default The Pump Room - Halifax - June 2015


    The pub was built in 1791 and pre-dates most of the other buildings round the area by at least half a century. Previously known as the Druids' Arms then renamed the Overdraught and finally the Pump Room.
    It is now due for demolition to make way for a new shopping centre.

    This has always been locked down tight but now demolitions underway an entrance has opened up, so I later returned with Merkal Jackson only to find out on this occasion we were too late and everything’s been emptied.

    'The Overdraught' is a great name for a pub.
