Gravesend Pubs

Gravesend is a town of many pubs. There is even a book on the history of Gravesend pubs called 'A Pub On Every Corner'

In recent years the town pubs have had a hard time and many are now closed and reused for other purposes.

I have been photographing these buildings as they change. Many have changed their names and most now are being repurposed.

One bar called the HQ Bar closed down last year and has been up for sale. Before It was HQ Bar it was the R Bar.

When I went past it yesterday I saw that the builders had been in and the front of the building was out.

What was interesting was the Borough Shades sign was visible. 

Also at either sides there were the advertising signs for the old pub.

No doubt when I next go to town a new shopfront will be in and a new tenant will be trading.

The civic centre is 60/70s brutalist. Took a quick walk around the building while on Tuesday night beer run.
