By George, its coming down, and Homeflair is closed
Sadly the George Pub demolition is under way. Such a sad event, and loss to Pinner's architectural past. I am not sure that if housing is provided there it will be affordable, a crime. Having said that the last time I drank in there was 1975. It was also held in great affection by a lovely man who now has sadly passed away.
Just before the demolition kicked off on Thursday of this week I managed to take these shots through the windows on a sunny day. Here also are pictures of the demolition operation taken today, and on Thursday when they were putting up the scaffolding and screening. Also a long shot of the Homeflair shop. The manage there who was not the cheeriest of fellows was inside today packing up stock for transfer to their Ruislip Store. I wonder who will take over the shop? It would be great if Wetherspoon's turned it into one of their pubs.
