Pubs in England are more than boozy watering holes. They are part of the history and fabric of life here and have been throughout history.
Even though we don't often visit pubs, seeing more and more of these establishments fall into a state of deterioration is still sad to see. In August this year the Guardian reported that 31 pubs close every week in the UK. Many factors contribute to closures, the smoking ban, economic down turn, changes in social lifestyles etc. Though many are snapped up by developers and turned into flats or other things a few are left to face decay.
