Re: Con Club

I am more and more convinced the heading written on Accrington Library "paperwork" does NOT refer to what you have assumed is our famous Accy Con. To be continued ...........
ps no way was Cannon Street ever Blackburn Road! Trust me![/QUOTE]
The Con Club on Cannon Street is shown on the 1909 street plan where it is today. The present day Cannon St is the 2nd street bearing that name in Accrington, the 1st Cannon St is now Queen St, off Abbey St.

Re: Con Club

Wasn't there a fire there a while back? From what we were told the place was more-or-less gutted then. What a waste of a building it is - was my husband's old stomping ground (was going to say hunting ground but that might conjure up pictures of wild youths chasing after members of the female variety - hmm!!!! maybe that picture fits - don't want to know about it).
I agree, Jaysay, insurance companies don't make their big profits by insuring such places, or if they did the premiums would be huge.

Would a building like that escape from any insurance, what about 3rd party if it collapses or damages other properties etc.

There isn't really any damage to be done Walter, if you have an empty house or a factory say, would you insure it

Re: Con Club

What happens if, through neglect/failure to maintain the property, stonework falls from the building and damages cars or injures people?

Barrie, it dose not matter if the building is insured. If the insurance company can prove that the claim has been caused through lack of maintenance, and, or neglect, they will not pay. The property owner will have to pay the claim

The council has the power to enforce that the owner of a building keeps it safe and secure,whether it's insured or not. I know thats debateable in the Con's case but the mechanism is there. Private landlords and property owners have been taken to court in the past.
