Does anyone remember the Wheatsheaf pub in Honley?
Graham Turton, who works for the Royal Voluntary Service, escorted a lady from Bradley to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The lady used to live in Honley and said that a relative with the surname of Heap used to own the Wheatsheaf. It was situated on Southgate, opposite the dental surgery.
Honley Male Voice Choir held its first meeting there in 1936 (the pub, not the dental surgery) but I can’t find any other mention of it.
Pubs of long ago were hubs of village life. Many no longer exist.
Honley is lucky to have three with rich pasts that have survived and are thriving: The Foresters, The Allied and The Jacob’s Well.
But does anyone remember the Wheatsheaf, its history and when it closed? And how about other areas? Do you have fond memories of old pubs that are long gone but not forgotten?
