Above photo 1983, kindly sent by Tony Smith.

 

Built on the site of the "Imperial Forces" after this was demolished in the mid 1970s, and looking no more than a prefabricated or portable building, it opened around 1983 as the "Chatham Arms" but didn't last long, as I am informed by Tony Smith that it had closed it's doors again one year later in 1984.

I believe the locals used to call this the "Cardboard Arms" due to it's structure. Not sure whether it just blew away but it certainly never lasted long and Courage, the owners decided not to replace it with a more permanent building due to its "awkward location."
