The 'Bird in The Hand', Huddersfield Road, Newhey
The 'Bird in The Hand', Huddersfield Road, Newhey
The vital word is 'The', which distinguishes this pub. from the Bird In Hand, lower down the road. This one is known to locals as the 'Top Bird', and I suspect, but do not know, that it is the older of the two. Both these pubs take their name from the once very popular local sport of cock-fighting, which lingered on (and may still do so) in isolated places around the moors, on a clandestine basis long after it was made illegal.
