(across from the bottom of Newark St. still there ? what about the Globe , still there or long gone ? .......guess it a long dry walk

The Last Orders (used to be the George) The Imperial, The Spread Eagle, The Railway, The Calder and the Regency i think thats about it, everything else is closed


oh and Platts is still there

The Oaktree closed a while ago, The Globe is closed too i think, thats been an awful dive as long as i can remember

Sounds like there have been lots of changes , so basically there is nowhere in the area bounded in between Church and the street to Corporation Bus depot , Blackburn Rd. and Hyndburn Rd for anyone to get a pint , lot of people live in that area (all those streets around St Andrews Church), what do they drink ?

nags head?

I remember my 18th celebration which I joined with my best mate. We started near town and worked along BBurn road. We were lushed by the time we got to teh Antley. By the time we got to church we were bouncing off walls. Good night though!!!

the Last Orders was the Royal before it became the George, thats the pub steeljack will remember. the Big Crown is long gone sadly. the Nags Head could be classed as one, even though the doors on School Street, for steeljacks benifit the Regency was the Commercial (accy centre) the church one is long gone, as are the Oak Tree, the Antley which became a muslim girls school.

So far as Church itself is concerned Only the Thorne left open and rumours are thats to shut in a couple of weeks which will just leave the Club as a watering hole, things are looking dismal!
