Butchers Arms Inn, Waingate, Berry Brow

This page is a bare-bones entry for a specific location marked on an old map. More detailed information may eventually be added...


  • location: 2 Waingate (by the junction with Woodhead Road), Berry Brow
  • status: no longer exists
  • category: public house, beerhouse, inn, etc.
  • see also: Butchers Arms, Meltham Road, Netherton

The 1871 Census records it as a beerhouse and residence of butcher Ben Brooksbank (aged 52). By 1891, the innkeeper was butcher William Bradley (aged 41).

The Alehouse Licences also record the following transfers of licence:

  • 5 April 1893 — Joseph Chappell
  • 17 October 1894 — William Chappell

The inn was recorded as being owned by Bentley & Shaw, Ltd., as was nearby Butchers Arms in Netherton, which led to bookkeeping error in 1932 when a sum of £25 paid by the Netherton public house was credited and then paid to Mrs. Ada O. White of the Berry Brow Butchers Arms. The brewery ended up taking the case to Huddersfield County Court to reclaim the disputed money.[1]
