Not so many years ago it was a popular pub.

And way before that it was a busy working mill.

Now it’s set to be just another hole in the ground.

The Joseph Glover Pub - formerly known as The Mill - just off Station Road in Halfway, has been unused and boarded up for years.

And despite attempts to sell it, the place has remained empty.

Now the demolition men have moved in and the familiar landmark is being flattened - as shown by this picture.

It was taken by Bob Flanagan, who owns the Peak Fireplace and Sliding Wardrobes Centre in Beighton.

Bob said: “It’s a beautiful old building and it’s a real shame that it is coming down.

“Surely something should have been done to save it.”

Campaigners had in fact tried to save the building, part of which dates back to 1776, by having it listed.

Unfortunately the request failed and the demolition has gone ahead.
