In the YEP the other day: The Omnibus in Belle Isle, which has been closed for a while is proposed to be demolished and replaced with (surprise, surprise) housing. There had been previous application(s) to convert the existing building to flats which was turned down.

When we lived in Beeston early 1960s we used to go to the New White Bear on a Friday night. apart from the extra half hour drinking time they had a great pianist in the long back room and as i fancied myself as Britain's next Sinatra it was perfect. The beer was Bentley's /Beverley's Brewery which was awful to me a Tetleys regular.
At that time the Old White Bear on the Wakefield Road was still there on the left hand side,
One evening about that time on our way to Wakefield i was driving somewhere in the vicinity of that Pub when i found myself in complete darkness. I drove on for a short distance and as i still could not see the Wakefield Road i stopped and got my pal Dennis to get out and guide me turning round. Some time later i discovered that this was a works contractors newly opened dirt road and that just a short distance from where i had stopped it was a sheer, very deep drop to to the, what was to be a section the M.62. Motorway.
