Blue Diamond up for sale

Between Brownhill and Blackburn the only drinking establishment left is the Orchard Working Men's club. From the Brownhill Arms, all the way to Blackburn, a total of six pubs have closed. One has gone altogether. Thwaites brewery closed Daniels. The Bastwell Arms became the Kebabish, Thrill of the Grill Asian food outlet. The Seven Trees stands empty and the Thwaites Arms has become a private business. Opposite that, and the Blackburn Cemetery, is what was the Cemetery pub. It became the Blue Diamond Indian restaurant about three years ago. Now it is closed and up for sale. It seems for every business that starts up, another shuts down.
