Although there are 60,000 pubs still in
existence in the UK today, two are closing every day of the week. This is
the highest rate of closure since the 1904 Compensation Act saw 10% of pubs
forced to close.
These pubs rarely reopen as nowadays most are converted to
residential or retail use.
Help us in our
quest to archive these lost pubs before they are forgotten for ever. If you
know of a pub which has closed at any time in the past, please submit it,
together with any anecdotes, historical information or photographs that you might have.
Pubs do re-open from time to time, so if you see one on the site that is
open please let us know.
