A former pub in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, has been given a new lease of life – following a £1-million development project.
The Crossed Shuttle is managed by Daniel Francis (pictured).
The pub’s name refers to two pairs of crossed shuttles which were featured on the Borough of Pudsey’s coat of arms for more than 70 years, reflecting the importance of the textile trade in the history of this area.
For centuries, Pudsey depended on farming and sheep-rearing, with fleeces woven, by villagers in their cottages, by moving shuttles across hand looms.
The Crossed Shuttle has a pavement-café-style area to the front of the premises.
