Hey mate i aint had a drink fer a few years now,reckon i'm being paid back or summat. I got a form of neuralgia thats alcohol triggered, so thats how i come to that conclusion.

Retlaw believes that the Railway pub was originally called the Spread Eagle, a name later given to a pub a short distance from the Railway. He could well be right, but I have never seen anything to support his theory. I have twice tried to get Thwaites to dig out the original deeds. If he is right, then the name Eagle St can be explained. I don't know any other reason why that street is so called. Possibly it is a veiled reference to the eagle on Lord Derby's arms. He was a mighty powerful man in early Victorian England.

Dobbo I hate you, when I research sumat I keep going till its no longer possible to go any further, and I did find proof, as for Thwaites and deeds, some of those old so called deeds back in the early 1800's were not like the deeds we know today, many were lost or destroyed and new ones made, many of which don't have original names on.
Several properties round where I live no longer have their original deeds, and the have no idea who the original owner or builder was or when they were built.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

I have seen a reference to The Red Lion pub which used to be in the old PC Tubes building in Abbey Street, does this ring any bells?

You are correct in that the tyre place was formerly the Red Lion. Not sure when it ceased to be a pub.

As previously mentioned what we need is a website dedicated to our pubs and club - there is a superb one on Preston pubs.

Tyre place? The building I was referring to is at the top of Black Abbey Street.

I did create a list of pubs with the help of some members on here but it clearly isn't complete. See the 'Accrington Pubs Link', in my signature.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Yes - top of Black Abbey. It was built to cash in on travellers using the new turnpike, mid- 1700s.

The tyre place was George Klarksons tyre firm. Remember this from the early fifties to late sixties.
By the way Klarkson was an Accringto Stanley director when the club folded up.

I remember Clarksons Tyres but when Mark had it under the railway arch on Hyndburn Road and then later up Church Street. Where was the business when George had it?
