Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

Also for the photo you included. The Google Street Map with Pearl Court shows me that Dr Harbinsons Surgery and the Antley pub were not so far from Church District. The Antley Methodist Church seems to have survived. Coincidentally, it was in the Graveyard of a disused Methodist Church in Bury [Unsworth] where I found a Walsh grave as a part of the chain leading me to Church District!

Incidentally, I do think it's a good that a local Doctor is remembered in this way, even if the memory is painful for some. The building where my doctor [probaly very similar] had his practise in Bury when I was a child in the fifties is still there, at the start of Wash Lane on the right as you head for the Motorway.

I meant to include all this in the last posting but I keep forgetting there is only ten minutes editing time allowed in this Forum and I'm more used to twenty.

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

Hi Dave Walsh, does this help in anyway? This view is looking towards Church traffic lights.

I think the photo is of the old Antley foundry offices.
Long gone now.

Edit, sorry, got it wrong, the office is further down.
I should stop posting on line at this unearthly hour.

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

This is a big help with my learning curve so thanks all. Like researching family history you often have to revise a first impression. So if I have this right [probaly not] Atarah's photo [same as Tea Leaf back in post 1*] is the Doctors Surgery... now Pearl Court?

No, my mistake sorry. Atarahs pic shows it is at the bottom of Newark street not pearl street, Newark street is one block closer to church.

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

Sorry if I've confused you gpick. I changed that post from pub to Surgery after looking at the picture of the Antley as a Muslim Centre.
Does that make a difference? Is Pearl Court correct or do you mean it's actually Newark Street?

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

The Antley Pub (Thwaites House) was on the bottom corner of Newark St, just off the last picture atarah posted. It was later supposed to become a muslim girls school,or so the sign said, but fer some reason it never came to pass,

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

My Mum and Dad used to run the Antley, in fact the last they did before my Dad had to retire.

Re: Church's Historic Waterfront

A pal of mine took it over in the 60s. It was his first pub. He was shocked to find loads of cockroaches in the cellar and phoned the area manager for advice. It was - find some lads to catch a frog and put it down there. He did and got rid of the cockroaches.
