This building was The Shoulder of Mutton, a pub/restaurant at 30 Otley Road, Baildon until 2018, .
This Inn was built by Mr Michael Lambert and was occupied by him for many years. Mr Lambert was born at Low Hill, Moorside, Baildon, and was apprenticed to a Blacksmith, and carried on with this business besides his role of Inn Keeper, he retired in 1882. Mr Lambert’s parents kept the Three Horse Shoes at High Fold, Baildon.
Notes from the Local Board minutes for 15 May 1866 state that Mr Michael Lambert's alterations to his Brewhouse were approved. No address is mentioned.
Local Board minutes for 16_Aug_1887 state that Mr Lambert was ordered to provide better urinals at the Shoulder of Mutton Inn.

The Shoulder of Mutton became The Little Blue Orange in 2013 and was demolished in 2017/2018 to make way for housing on the site. There are several planning applications that have been approved for the site. One being 17/03032/MAF. As of 2018 you can get to this application on the Bradford Council Public Access site by using this link. This application is for demolishing the existing pub and building 10 houses.
The site is now Brian Close Walk. Brian Close was a Yorkshire and England cricketer who for part of his childhood lived in one of the houses near Primrose Row just up from the site.
