Farfield Inn, Neepsend Lane.

I would imagine the only value to the place is the land it stands on?

Thinking about reopening it? Been closed since 2007 after been damaged in the flood nice building.

 

The owner never got back to me but I didn't want it as a pub, I had some other ideas for it. Instead it's just left to rot. I don't understand why people sit on these properties rather than sell them, although I'm willing to bet it will have something to do with getting more money, eventually.

Anybody know the history of this car?

 

It was Ralf`s car, the landlord who we nicknamed "Arkwright " as he was open all hours.

If it was a white one, it belonged to Ralph Salt, the old landlord.

 

Remember his missus Sue ?

She certainly did mate. Ralf was a one off. If anyone was not cut out to be a landlord, it was Ralf.

That Cortina reached a bit of a cult status with me and my mates. I used to drive past it on my way to work. In 10 years I don't think it ever moved.

It would be brilliant if someone saved the Farfield, not necessarily as a pub, just to stop the building from rotting beyond repair would be good. I always feel a little sad when I go past these days, it looks so forlorn.

 

I must admit, I think I developed a bit of a fascination with the place after all those years of driving past it. Even when it was open it looked intriguing. Never brave enough to step inside though!

It's sad isn't it? We would have lovingly worked in it, bit by bit. I went to a couple of gigs there, my ex hubby was in a local punk band in the late 80's. I remember seeing them play upstairs.
