Does anybody know if there was a chemical works next door or very near to this pub.I'm looking at someone on the 1851 who was resident at what I think it says is the 'Chemical works' which is next on the census sheet after the Greyhound Inn. In 1861 his address was Vitriol Works Cottage. Thanks
After a bit more Googling it seems the Altham Vitriol Works was near to Lower Clough Bank by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, bridge 116. This is what a canal walker said of it recently. "Named as Lower Clough Bank on the 1898 OS map it has a reservoir below it. On the other side of the canal Altham Vitriol Works once stood but now there is little to be seen of it.
After Fosters Swing bridge the canal approaches
Clayton-le-Moors". In the 1861 census The Greyhound Inn is about 3 sheets further away from Vitriol Works Cottages and names like Enfield Farm, Moonside House Further Holker House and Sankey House are mentioned before the census reaches the cottages. Any memories anyone? Thanks

Does a Red Lion Pub exist in Green Haworth, Accrington? My nana said her grandfather Broughton Haworth was proprietor at one stage and known as Mayor of Bedlam?
