Re: Alma Inn Baxenden

Re Isolation hospital. I was always led to believe you could get to it down a pathway off Hollins Lane, where you can see an old "stone" (boundary type stone) - cant think what you call them. This stone (marker of some description) is on the grass verge, approx. near 3rd or 4th house down from Hollins School. Think it could be got to down a "path" there.

Re: Alma Inn Baxenden

I knew I had a piccy somewhere. Here is it. If you take a walk up Hollins Lane and find this stone, you will notice there is still an old pathway (now fenced off) near by. This is what I understand to be the way to the old hospital.

Would have to look at the newspaper article to confirm.
Took a look at this article in the library ... even though was this date ... it showed a list of landlords and pubs in 1869, so the above gentleman was the landlord then.

Also wondered how the patients in hospitals were recorded in a census. The one I got from the 1911 census only showed the caretaker and his family, as my previous post.

Re: Alma Inn Baxenden

Hi Stellaahh, can you explain just whereabouts it was, and how you got to it. That would be interesting.

Who was the Landlord?
The Landlord was called Harris Clegg, can't remember all the names of his sons but they were all involved with Bash Cricket club too, There was David, Peter (who worked for HBC) but can't for the life in me remember the others. Harris was a Scot, I used the pub quite a lot in those days as I worked for Arnold Rileys and my mate used it as his local

Paul was another one - can't remember the others' names.

Re: Alma Inn Baxenden

Spotted this when searching for Fig Pie Hall and felt the need to add the following to the mill.

I was told as a child (b1952) that my Great, Great Grandfather, Richard Haworth was, the first landlord of the Alma before moving on to the Black Horse in Abbey Street.

In 1861 and 1871 Census he is listed as beer seller at Fig Pie Hall. In 1881 and 1891 Census he is Landlord at the Black Horse.

He was living a Fig Pie Hall in 1851 when a John Haworth (no relation as far as I know) is listed as beer seller but that would have been prior to the Alma name.

My aunt remembers her Grandmother telling her she was born at Magpie Hall (1860).
