On the junction of Manchester Road and New Street, Old Haywoods, Deepcar. It was referred to by locals as ‘Pladdey’s’ after a popular and public-spirited couple who were the landlords for almost 40 years. The sign above the door reads, “William Burkinshaw, Licensed Retailer of Ale, Beer, Porter & Tobacco”, and the one underneath advertises “Don Brewery Celebrated Ales.”

This later photograph shows the ground floor windows have been altered. It also seems as if another door was added. The pub closed its doors in the late 60s/early 70s and the building is now a private house. Picture Sheffield reference: t10999
