Yorkshire's Real Heritage Pubs
The Regional Inventory of heritage pubs in Yorkshire
• A unique guide to over 119 pubs in the Yorkshire region whose interiors have been little altered over the past 40 years, including some that are much as they were before the Second World War. The featured entries cover the whole spectrum of pub heritage, from simple rural 'time warp' establishments to Victorian drinking
‘palaces’ with spectacular décor and fittings. The guide moreover advances the claims to recognition for the more unsung interiors of the inter-war and early
post-war eras that we take so much for granted.
• Aimed at architecture, pub and heritage professionals, as well as a general audience – informative text, illustrations and full-colour photographs explore the variety of historic pub interiors in the Yorkshire region and highlight their significance.
• Divided into separate sections for the four Yorkshire counties, with a short introduction to each (including a brief historical outline of who were the principal pub builders) and clear maps showing the pub locations.
• Short background articles on relevant topics like architectural ceramics, heritage protection and 'The Dark Side' – a reflection on the dangers that threaten the heritage and the fine pubs we continue to lose.
The Regional Inventory list is now published in a CAMRA guide, £4.99 (members £3.99): Yorkshire’s Real Heritage Pubs (Revised Edition 2014 with updates to 2019/20).
