A big, four-square former Thwaites pub situated in an interesting coastal village which combines yacht marina with light industry and working port. It was converted to flats some years ago, but here’s a picture of it as a pub. There’s a plaque by the door giving its former name. The village still manages to sustain two other pubs.
The Prince Albert
This large pub by a roundabout to the west of the town centre was originally two separate pubs – the Prince Albert and the Prince of Orange – which were combined into one.
A once-popular destination pub, formerly tied to Greenalls, alongside the main A470 road in an attractive situation by the River Conwy. Still open on StreetView, and there are apparently plans to reopen it.
A massive late Victorian pub with a commanding view over Morecambe’s run-down seafront.
The Hope & Anchor
An imposing three-storey mid-terrace pub just off the town centre that is still very much open on StreetView, but now in a sadly derelict and boarded-up state.
A modern pub on the main A460 close to an industrial estate, which looks small from the front but presumably rambles back further. Take a step back and it’s open again.
A redbrick roadside pub with a rendered ground floor, standing at a slightly odd angle to the road, not too far from the Hawthorne.
A substantial roadside pub that is still open on StreetView, but closed shortly after the images were taken and has since been subject to two arson attacks, while the surrounding area has been drastically redeveloped.
The Commercial, Widnes, Lancashire
A small, foursquare pub in the Halton View area of the town which many years ago was transferred from Greenalls’ to Wilsons’ ownership as part of a “pub swap”.
The Seven Stars
This once-attractive pub alongside the Stafford-Sandon road used to be a
Burtonwood tied house and featured in many early editions of the Good Beer Guide. Take a step forward into 2009 and it’s open again.
The Sylvan Inn
A massive 1930s neo-Georgian pub unexpectedly hidden away in an area of private housing well off the main roads.
