Sorry about the spelling mistake. Yes, it was on the corner of Abbey St. and Black Abbey St. Where supposedly the Red Lion Pub was, although I can't remember the building being a pub.

Cheers

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Are you not thinking of George Clarke Motorcycles They had a place across from Hope & Anchor I don't remember a tyre place there - I think before the motorbike shop it was Taylor Bros. garage.

As said, it is on the corner of Abbey St. and Black Abbey Street.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Unless the building to the side with railings is part of the old pub . there's no evidence of a cellar, though of course it could have been accessed round the back. That building having the same painted windows may indicate that it was part of the pub.

No it was definitely George Clarkson who had the tyre business.
This lovely man lived across the Street from my Grandma....back in the early fifties.
He lost his wife, they had no children....then he went on to marry a Nurse who worked at Accrington Victoria(I only ever knew her as Sister Clarkson....it was not the done thing for students to get pally with the senior staff)
George went on to have a good handful of sons(I cannot remember now whether there were 4 or 6 of them...but they were his pride and joy)
I used to see Sr Clarkson about town, she was tall and had a very upright bearing.
I have not seen her for a couple of years now...so not sure if she is no longer with us.
I know she was a good bit younger than George.

I think I remember it being the Red Lion pub...I am sure my grandad used to go in there for a pint of mild....mind you it is a long long time ago....maybe 1950/51.

The building to the side looks like it was added after the 'pub' was built as the main building has matching corner stones at each end.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Members with far more knowledge than me have spoken of this before.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

The building was the Red Lion, then became Clarksons Tyres, then it became Marnita Automatics, owned by a top bloke, think he was called Arnold, sold and did up pin tables and the like, his wife owned Ednas Cafe further down Abbey St, just lower than the Canine Club, used to go in yon daily.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Arnold used to come in Ednas and sort the machines in the back out if they were playing up.
