The Maypole closed in January 2012, having been on the market for at least three years, with plans to reopen May/June of that year.
Reported (January 2014) still closed, it was observed to be boarded up by May 2014. The site was marketed "for residential development", so it seems unlikely the pub will reopen. It has now been sold and works have been observed to be ongoing.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
