The Eastender is a former pub, which as its name suggests, is based in the East End of the City of Sunderland. Situated on High Street East, the bar closed at some point in the past couple of decades as the area became increasingly quiet. The pub was the scene of a notorious confrontation in 1997 between bouncer Ernie Bewick and Tony Waters, which resulted in the latter being killed. Since closing, the building of the pub has remained derelict, with no plans for its sale, renovation or demolition.
Recently, an urban explorers team took it upon themselves to explore the old pub building. Here’s what they found.
