More on Calder Valley Pubs

Following the recent floods it has now come to light that Punch Taverns have decided to dispose of three of their pubs which have been damaged by the floods
The three are
The Railway in Hebden Bridge The Dusty Miller in Mytholmroyd THe Golden Lion in Todmorden
All three are currently closed and I am not sure if they will be repaired before they are sold. They are going to be sold as pubs.
Whilst it would probably impossible at the present time to insure them against flood they could be a bargain for any small brewery wanting a pub. They are all pretty well sited in the relevant towns.

A slightly mixed message here. Surely the last thing a small independent brewer wants is an uninsurable property? The excess alone, for insurance, could well be in the order of £10,000, which represents an awful lot of beer.
Or does your 'at the present time' comment mean that the insurance on riverside properties is likely to come down in the future? In a place like Hebden Bridge, with two major floods in the space of a fortnight, it would be a brave or foolish insurer to take on that risk at a reasonable premium.
I'd love to know your reasoning for saying such things.
