If it has not been removed for 10 years or so it can be hard to shift. I've removed mine recently and know! Obviously it still rotates. You must fully slacken the adjuster, remove the caliper and the countersunk screw. You say the hub shaft shows signs of copper ease so is presumably not rusty. The disc/drum should now come off.

Turning it, clouting the drum with a hammer, heaving on the disc, and levering it at the back, should shift it a fraction. Turning the drum a bit and repeating these efforts should eventually get it off.

If. god forbid, the linings have come off the shoes, you have a problem. I have done a dozen or so, and the problem in the end turns out to be a ring of rust inside the drum where the shoes do not rub. That is why it is vital to retract the adjuster fully!

I've removed the hex screw. Fully loosened the cable adjuster under car. So far as I can tell, the shoe adjuster is fully retracted but could be seized half way. I pulled the handbrake cable behind the drum/disc a few times to check mechanism was working and free and it is.

I at least expected a slight movement. Between the drum and the hub looking in the bolt holes there is no movement at all. Never had one like this before.

Do you clout it in between the wheel bolt holes on the front or on the side of the drum?
I clout the back of the disc where the brake caliper used to be. There is probably a strong rust bond between the hub and the drum centre. Spray some WD40 around the bond. The copper ease was probably used to free the alloy wheel centre, that tends to get stuck on the hub too.
Bash it good and hard and you should see it rock a bit. Turn the wheel a bit and repeat. Spray more WD40. It's got to come off. The drum is expendable.

Gideon in his last budget massively increased stamp duty on the highest band and likewise with cars. :( The end result for both has been less duty raised where the number of sales have greatly decreased. This is what happens when Government's are so greedy all their taxes are the wrong side of the Laffer curve and raise less than the optimum. :( This is why they are looking for new taxation classes and revenue streams, so expect many new 'guilt' taxes over the next few years where they have started with sugar, but this a tree hugger low hanging fruit dream area with little likely resistance from more 'nanny statism' taxes. :(

A Former neighbour of mine worked as an electrician for a left wing national newspaper. If you saw how his house outside lights are wired, you know he had never read any wiring regs. :o

I can quite believe it! :o :o ;)
"the cobbler's shoes are never fixed"

with Bs7671 people make the mistake of interpreting one section rule applies ,and if their solution covers that rule, all is good .
BUT , other sections and rules must also be met .

still have a chuckle to myself when Billy "prince of darkness / DIY SOS" says "ring main" instead of ring final circuit 
ring main  being the term for the DNO supply cables
