Dec 2005 Forty years on and it's not just the pub building has gone - the entire street has too!
The site was completely engulfed in the Moorlands Estate development which saw Sussex Road and Geneva Road (which ran north-to-south from Loughborough Park to Coldharbour Lane) as part of a large housing project dominated by the Barrier Block (aka Southwyck House).
