Winster Mews, Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 0LU
The second of the Gamesley pubs, again with Roman pretensions , again closed.
The pub was said to be doing well, until the owners Enterprise Inns ceased trading on the site.
Standing close by the estate’s main row of shops sadly boarded up awaiting a future, any future.
As too were the pub’s retail companions, save a community café – which was doing a brisk trade.
The building is sound, classic Estate Pub design single storey bars, two storey living accommodation – solid brick and tile construction.
It has been up for auction with a guide price of £40,000 – there are no signs of for sale signs, and signs of some positive activity around the property. It seems unlikely to reopen as a boozer, my recent acquaintance in the picture expressed a preference for a nursery.
“Something for the kids, that would be good.”
Only time will tell.
“Sed fugit interea, fugit irreparabile tempus, singula dum capti circumvectamur amore”.
As they say in Gamesley.
