Halifax Pubs Past and Present

In Halifax Pubs Past and Present the aim is to include an extensive library consisting of the life and times of every pub and club that ever existed in and around the areas of Halifax with a Wiki-type information page on each property.  I will need your help to keep the list up to date and to provide as much information and as many photos as possible.

  • Which pubs are missing from the list?
  • What do you know about the history of any of the pubs?
  • Do you have any old photos of any of the pubs?
  • Do you have any group photos at the pub?
  • Can you tell a story about any of them?
  • Are you the landlord/lady wanting to place an advert?
