Other licence/ownership info

Taken from the list of Richard Whitaker & Son Ltd. pubs[5] :-

  • 173. New Inn, Otley Road, Baildon (Aug. 1936) +

According to Brewerypedia Richard Whitaker & Son Ltd. acquired the New Inn from the estate of Brear & Brown Ltd. Hipperholme in May 1917. However the date Aug 1936 could be when it came into the hands of Whitakers and the + indicates it was passed to Whitbread. Some clarification would be nice. The date of Aug 1936 is earlier than what seems to be the recorded date in the Licence Register. This is not surprising as the register might only be sent the information if it is noticed to be out of date.

Richard Whitaker & Son Ltd. were acquired by Whitbread & Co. Ltd. in 1968.
