    The Harlescott Inn was until recently a well-known family pub in Shrewsbury. It closed in January 2006 for financial reasons, and was badly damaged in an arson attack on 4 February 2006. Since the pub closed it has been subjected to unbelievable vandalism and will need to be totally refitted. I estimate that the large building probably dates from the 1950s, but it might be 1930s, I'm not certain.

    The pub was totally destroyed by a huge fire during the night of 17-18 March 2006. See the gallery "Burnt Down" and http://www.shropsh...icle.php?aID=43525 for more information.

    LATEST NEWS: The pub has now been demolished and a Lidl supermarket built on the site.
     Media Coverage
    Shropshire Star story about second fire:
    BBC News story about first fire:
    Articles about proposed supermarket development:
     Future Plans
    A planning application to demolish the pub and build a supermarket on the site has been rejected. After the recent fire it will almost certainly be demolished, even if a supermarket isn't built on the site.
