The Pear Tree Inn, Huddersfield Road around 1915
The Pear Tree along with the Black Bull are probably the least changed public houses
in Mirfield. When you take time to consider the size of pubs from their time, and how seldom they are full to anywhere near capacity these days, the licensed trade must have been a far more lucrative
business then today.
Behind the pub on the site of the current beer garden once stood one of the many malt kilns that were scattered around Mirfield. The remains of the kiln can still be seen from
across the river.
