The Canal House - details

The James Brindley pub was built at the Bridge Street site in the 1980s, replacing a former canalside warehouse.

It was a very popular venue during the 1990s.

But it closed down for good in 2008.

It was then boarded up and derelict until 2017.

After being closed for about 8 or 9 years, work began to transform The James Brindley into The Canal House around Spring 2017.
