The lost pubs that were hubs for men

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I WON­DER if the mas­ter­minds be­hind the culling of our pubs through­out the bor­ough, have ever given any thought to the pa­trons who have used them to so­cialise and in­ter­act with friends?

As pubs have al­ways been a male dom­i­nated do­main, a lot of lo­cals, es­pe­cially elderly men, have been left at a loose end, cre­at­ing lone­li­ness.

In some in­stances, the pubs have been de­mol­ished to stay a wilder­ness – Tithe Farm Pub, Alexan­dra Ave, South Har­row, re­port­edly a Listed Build­ing, sup­posed to be pro­tected.

What is the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion?
