Although this place is now used as offices, the arm for the Pub sign is still attached to the building.

The arm is unusual in its design and incorporates the letters 'MHA'.

It probably isn't all that old, possibly from the 70's or 80's due to the welding and the use of what looks like metric sized steel.

Any ideas - and are there any more like this about?

I wonder if they rent out pubs to non-reforming alcoholics :-)

All very plausible answers, but wasn't the sign there while the Pub was open (or recently closed, as in the first picture)?.

I think that anything to do with use by a housing association would have to be after it closed.

The words 'housing association' came into my mind at the time, but then I found another building in Market Street with MHWA in the brickwork, which looked original, thus over 100 years old, and possibly related.. but I was going to save that picture for another topic..
