There has been an Inn on this site, formerly, and before the opening of the Stocksbridge By-pass, the junction of the A616 (Woodhead Pass) and the A628. The original Inn, dating from the early 1820s, is opposite this building and still exists as a dwellng - see link. Sadly, despite many efforts and differing restaurant themes/cuisines, this building, from the 1920s, is now closed with a pending planning application for demolition and construction of houses on the site. The origin of the name is not definitively known, but my favourite is that it was originally The Plough Inn but some of the paint on the first and fifth letters peeled off leaving the word Flouch. As at January 2012 it is closed and empty, but not overly vandalised - perhaps due to the Keep Out Police Training signs in the windows. I hope the building remains as it has been a landmark for nearly a century ... perhaps it could be retaind and converted into apartments.
