Re: The Stag Inn

I heard there was a (not so) secret tunnel in the cellar, can you confirm this Kaysyd?
Good luck with the new business (poundshop/cash generator?)

Re: The Stag Inn

Ive done a (minor) search and believe MargaretR mentioned (there may be) a tunnel from the stag inn to the dunk but nobody got back to her though....

...Hopefully Kaysyd can confirm the tunnel for us

A member on this forum, Staggeringman, was a former landlord. He hasn't posted here in a long time but might respond if his private message setting allows him to be notified of a message by email.

The Stag was originally the hunting lodge for the Dunk estate

It's possible that Margaret is thinking of the Stag Inn in Henry St, Church rather than the one in Bank St, Acc. but even then I cannot let her comment go unchallenged

Tunnels come under the category of 'myths' Not one has been properly surveyed , photographed and documented.

Re: The Stag Inn

I have just checked on Google Maps. The, now short, stretch of street in front of the Stag Inn at Church is named Bank St.

I am not aware that there is any other Stag Inn in Hyndburn (Cashy will know )

I'm with you on this Margaret, always knew the Stag in Church was on Bank St, and me too don't remember a pub of that name on Bank Street Accy and it was on my route as spotty kid down from Woodnook to the bus station to catch the bus to Accy Tech in the 50s/ 60's. Possibly it existed before then but I think not.

And I'm with you too Gordon on the urban myths prevalent in most towns about tunnels. The Abbey was reputed to have a tunnel going all the way to Whalley Abbey, now that would have been a major engineering feat. More credence to a tunnel between the Abbey alehouse and the Grange up on Abbey Street but it's never been verified.

A trip to the reference library Friday beckons I think.

I stand corrected. Whilst there were several pubs in Bank St, Acc, the Stag wasn't one of them. Bank St , Church is just off Henry St and the Stag was in it.

Re: The Stag Inn

To confirm, there is no sight of any tunnel existing in the cellar. But maybe it was bricked in the past.
