Emmott Arms - Undated 
 
Situated on Town Street Rawdon near the junction with Over Lane, the Emmott Arms has been a public house since 1780. In due course it became tied to William Whitaker & Co of the Bradford Old Brewery and later to Sam Smiths of Tadcaster . Present day (2021) it is still Sam Smiths of Tadcaster.
A horse drawn cart is outside the Emmott Arms. on the left is Over Lane with Emsley's Grocers at the corner with Larkfield Road on the right hand side of the store.
In 1822 the landlord was William Dennison, followed by John Dennison in 1853, then Jas Marshall in 1861.

To the right there is a bust stop - made of solid timber, with character, built to last. Whenever I see the replacement of this bus stop I cannot help thinking thank goodness Leeds City Council are not in charge of Stonehenge, they would have pulled it down and built a housing estate with the stone. The loss of the bus stop opposite the Emmott's is a tragedy, it is where I spent my youth, as did so may others !

The reverse of the postcard (above) featuring the Emmott Arms.
 The card reads " Back in the old village again, we had a lovely holiday and saw a lot thanks to you. Told Mrs Sproat about the party and she said we must all have one when her is due if possible at all. They got the telegram on Wednesday, Cheerio"
It was addressed to someone in St Ives Cornwall.

View of the Emmott Arms on Town Street Rawdon after snow has been cleared.
We can see on the signage it is still a Sam Smiths but now has a restaurant and on the right hand side there is an entrance into a car park.
