I think I managed to get one in there before they pulled it down..must have been about '71, I think.

Funnily enough, one of my first drinking joints in London - back in late '79/80 - was a Yate's Wine Lodge, in Mayfair of all places. It was just off Bond Street. You could spend three hours getting totally ****faced on Aussie wines, then buy a loaf of bread, a can of sardines and a pint of milk from behind the bar to go home and sober up with.

Was still open in 75/6 Tealeaf, all the bouncers from the Cav used to meet there before going on duty at 8-30

Re: Barbary Coast

You sure about that, Jaysay? i did quite a bit of drinking around Blackburn about 73/4 before I left for pastures anew and I seem to remember Yate's was in the old arcade, which got pulled down a few years before. Or am I, through the past mists of alcoholic inhebriance, getting confused with another location?

No was down a side street Tealeaf, I worked at the Cav 74/5 When it shut they opened a brand new place nearer the town centre. The place we went to was really dank inside dark wood and you had to queue up for your drinks, the queue was roped off with brass upstands with red ropes between

I cant remember exactly where that was Jaysay...was it further up on Church Street than where the newer one was but perhaps on the other side? My Dad once got a part time job there, but he's not with us anymore, and i never saw it at that time. I know he used to say there were some real characters in there, and they used to throw sawdust down on the floor, to help soak up the spilt ale etc etc!!

The other Pub diagonally opposite, which now has the name Clitheroe Kates on the side is definitely what was The Old Bank, as far as i recall it was in a row of terraced property at some point, which will have altered how people remember it! Age does funny things to the mind, and i worked near there in the 70's early 80's and i think that there were buildings on both sides of what you see now, cant remember, what was on the corner next to it, where the grass is now. But i think at the other side, where there is the Car Park and Grass verge in front of the Co-Op Funeral Service, was a small row of terraces which might still have been a Funeral Parlour but a smaller concern than it is now!

The street it was on Taggy was at right angles to Church Street if I remember rightly, I know it wasn't fare from the Cav.

Your right about the Old Bank, Taggy it was in the middle of row of terrace properties, went in quite often when Geoff Edwardson was the Landlord, he was on the committee of the Lancashire County Pool Association, when I was chairman
