That's fantastic - it (or something almost identical) was in the Fox and Newt until about a year ago. it disappeared when new owner's took over and I was worried it might be lost - but looks like its safe.

Hello. My name is Howard Benson. I'm currently compiling the history of Bentley's for my website www.WoodlesfordStation.co.ukI'd be interested in hearing from people who worked at the brewery, and also from anybody who has a connection to Water Haigh colliery at Woodlesford, Armitage's quarry and brickworks and the railway which ran through the village. My email is bensoh10@woodlesfordstation.co.ukThe brewery was opened in 1828 as a family concern by Thomas and Henry Bentley and later in the 1880s was incorporated as a Ltd company. I hope to publish as much as I can next year.

The excellent brewery historian Ron Pattinson has turned his attention to Bentley's, and asks the question what happened to Bentley's pubs after the Whitbread takeover in 1968:http://barclayperkins.blogspot.co.uk/20 ... 1959.htmlI know that there is Bentley's memorabilia in some pubs in Leeds, including the West End House and some of the Market Town Taverns such as Town Street Tavern in Horsforth, but where Melbourne pubs had their courtiers, some of which still survive, what identified a Bentley's pub and do any

big s wrote: oops it wasnt the byb man it was the OBJ man.do you remember the letters stood for oh be joyful and his body was made out of the letters obj.but i think....... it was a byb pub. I painted a copy of that joyful little feller on a railway bridge, could have been near Hollins Hill, Shipley. He held a stalk of wheat or barley in his left hand, and the stalk curved over his head and hovered over a pint glass of beer in his right hand.

Another pub for your list liits, is the Ivy, Valley Road, Pudsey. Still open, don't know who's beer it is now. Learned to drink babies yellow ... bitter there after delivering quite few regurgitated pints to Knostrop via the porcelain portal.
