The Pubs of Accrington

I have read a few threads on here which mention some of the long forgotten pubs of Accrington and thought it might be an idea to create a Google map and a concise list of all Accrington pubs whether open or closed down.

I have put a few pubs on there already but I just know there are many more to be added.
The map can be found here.
Accrington Public Houses

New pubs can be added to the map interactively but you will need a Password in order to do that. I did consider just making it open access but I decided that would be unwise.

Any Accy Web member can have a password - just ask on here and I will PM one to you. If there is enough interest, we could also add additional information ie. whether open/closed, photos and other relevant information

Anyone interested?

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Zooming in helps with accuracy and also switching to the satellite view helps to ID specific buildings. I guess there will have to be a bit of guesswork with some of them but they are not going to be too far out.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Ahh fair play didn't know about zoom, Have noticed using it Great Eastern is in the wrong place, it was on arnold st corner of dowry st, a thwaites house, also on arnold st corner maudsley st, was St Johns Hotel, another Thwaites House. Another was Royal Oak on Meadow St, plus on Maudsley St opposite corner from that was the New Brewery.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Sorry Cashy, didn't understand the reference to the Great Eastern until I looked again. All the ones I have put in are represented by beer classes with arrows off the bottom of them. The pub name is revealed when you hover over the beer glass. The pubs where the names appear directly on screen are the ones programmed into Google. You will see that Google thinks the Walton Arms is half way up Burnley Road.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

There's an aerial photo out of Garth Dawson's archives from 1970 in this weeks Observer and judging by the cars on what was the Broadway carpark the Australian had gone by then but one can see both the Black Bull and the Castle. I can also pick out that modernistic public toilet building on Union Street opposite the Astronaut. I'd forgotten about that.

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

I didn't realise, when I started this, just how many pubs have gone by the wayside that I used to drink in.
I have added some more but not sure where the Australian, Colliers, Welcome and St Ledgers were situated.
There are a few others which I am trying to locate.
Where was the Antley Inn? I have been up and down Blackburn Road, past Antley Church and garage, on Google Earth but just can't remember.
Was there another pub on the other side of Blackburn Road near there?

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Which corner was The Stanley Pub on - none of those building look like they used to be pubs.
Where was Spring Hill WMC? (Charter Street - Lonsdale Street?)
Was The Printers and Pickups Arms the same pub?

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

I have put quite a few more in this afternoon but you could save a lot of explaining Cashy if you added them

Re: The Pubs of Accrington

You put St. Johns on and that was near enough - I can easily move them about to get the correct position.
What did you struggle with?
Perhaps I can make it easier.
