[UPDATE1 23 November 1910 hours: the Angel closed briefly during August, although it reopened after the holidays and I assumed this was just a quiet season thing. But now the doors have closed once more and the blackboards outside say "The Angel is closed until further notice".
No other information is available at the moment (if anyone has any, I'd be interested to hear it) and the "until further notice" part sounds ominous]
[UPDATE2 15 February 2013 1700 hours: the front door of the Angel now has a "For Sale" board attached to it. The sale is being run directly by Oakwell Brewery.
The Brewery's website does not mention the sale, the only suggestion of a reduction in the estate being a variance between their "30 community pubs" and "29 pubs" for which there are descriptions.
The sale - showing that the Brewery clearly does not want to look for another tenant or manager - looks like another reduction in the number of Crewe pubs. Bad news]
