Ah.., the great British pub, or public house if you want to give it the full title. The stalwart of the male working-class where after a full shift in the factory one can visit downing eight or nine pints and then attempt to stagger home on foot.
In working-class towns on Saturdays, the pubs would be full of football fans regularly smashing them to pieces, fighting with the opposing teams’ fans, getting pissed, and then beating up the wife if their team lost.
Alas, this was a different time and better left in the past. In modern times the pubs are closing down at an alarming rate. Some get demolished, others renovated while many are simply left to rot away. They make for wonderful explores and there is often evidence left behind of the woeful financial experiences the past landlords have had to endure.
Many were built at the height of the British industrial revolution during the mid-1800s and boast a wealth of history. With some digging, one can often uncover secrets of scandals, murders, robberies, and famous drinkers of the ages.
