I watched the film and enjoyed it......but I can't see what added value it brings. The only people it will mean anything to are already here.

It would be really interesting to know the cost of all three commissions, before that could be evaluated.

Mapping Accy

Many thanks for all the information and feedback from Accrington Web that's helped me put together a new map for Accrington. Here's a preview of it so if there's anything missing or not quite right then let me know.
http://www.mappingaccy.co.uk
It's based on where people like to go and the history of the place rather than the roads and car parks. One comment is that the pubs should be highlighted as they are meeting places and are used to give direction so I'll try and work them in.

Any other suggestions?

Re: Animating Accy

I'm not totally sure if you have got the correct date (1856) for the opening of the Railway Hotel, John, is shown on maps of 1849. Still, at least it is mentioned which will suit certain people on here.

Would be good to have some sort of mention of The Coppice.

Yeh, but this is not 1856 either ? So, why does it show on the 1849 map then ... confused.com ?

Did it get a new facade or summat ?

Re: Animating Accy

Here's what's pointed me to the Railway and I need to find out if this is the same as the Railway Hotel mentioned below but the stone over the doorway suggests not.

Accrington Historic Town Assessment Report May 2005
In 1856 the following public houses, which had all appeared since 1818, were recorded in Accrington (not including Baxenden): the Swan and the Hargreaves Arms on Abbey Street; the Commercial Inn and the Railway Hotel on Blackburn Road; the King’s Arms on Lee Street; the Adelphi Hotel on Melbourne Street; the St Leger Inn on Plantation Street, and the Castle Inn on Whalley Road.

The date stone doesn't look original to me.It was usual to build them in to the construction,That one looks like an after thought and not a very good one.

Re: Animating Accy

Remember the dispute we had re. what the Railway was called before..

"Heres one which I don't think the brewery testers who gather in the Railway at the corner of Blackburn Rd & Edgar St, know what it was called before the Railways were built in Accrington in 1847.

Retlaw."

Retlaw's original remark indicates a name change around 1847, and I 'aint going to question him.
