New Inn, pen and ink drawing
1948. Pen and ink drawing by W.J. Monger showing the New Inn situated at number 18 Elland Road. The inn is known locally as 't' low' oil' as opposed to 't' middle oil' - the Old Golden Fleece and 't' top oil' - the Commercial Inn. A cockerel and hen are visible scratching around in front of the building. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Really nice to see these depictions of Churwell, I remember the three pubs being called Top ole, bottom ole and middle ole, it was pronounced oil but it was a dialect of hole I believe.

With reference to J. Cox's comment. I'm afraid that you wouldn't be likely hear the expression "Middle 'Oile" today. It's more likely to sound like "Tesco".
