The Globe, Standish

Comment by Mick on 10th March 2013 at 00:06
Because of its location at the road junction this is one of those pubs that stands out and say where you are if you are a stranger driving through Standish.


Comment by Ken R on 10th March 2013 at 00:11
Nice photo, it seems a prosperous establishment, what beer do the pull here??


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th March 2013 at 02:29
Lovely pic Alan.......for my album please.....cheers!!!


Comment by Frances on 10th March 2013 at 06:12
A lovely clear picture which has made me want to ask a question. I do believe this is where the Three Crowns pub was in the 1800's. I live across the globe, literally,
(in Australia)and would be grateful for any local knowledge regarding the Three Crowns. Could some of this building still be original?
My 1st cousin 4x removed was the publican of Three Crowns in 1871. He was James Simm born 1828 in Standish, and as I am researching my family tree, I find myself very interested in all branches. Nice picture Alan, thank you.


Comment by Nev on 10th March 2013 at 11:29
Frances, the Three Crowns was at 71 Church Street, now a house. The Globe as it now stands was once two pubs - the part on Church Street being the White Lion. Farther down Church Street was the Nag's Head, a stone building which used to be a dress/wedding shop.

Interesting info about Standish at http://www.wigan.gov.uk/NR/rdonlyres/13991910-E204-4EA3-BE44-2AEC976CCB5D/0/StandishPartFour646kb.pdf

The site in the photo seems empty in 1845 but with two largish buildings in 1892.

There is a reference to the road junction for 1897 :-
"... The acute angled junction of Church Street and High Street is occupied by a small triangular space with the Jubilee fountain shown. Further signs of urbanisation are the tramlines which linked Wigan and terminated at Standish crossroads."

I worked across the road in Richardson's Chemists in the early 1970s, when the shop was on High Street, (it's across in Church St. now). I used to go to Farrimond's chippy for my dinner, and a few months ago I was in Standish and went in the chippy for old times' sake and it was EXACTLY THE SAME!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th March 2013 at 18:52
Irene, I`ll bet a million to one that the price wasn`t!


Comment by irene roberts on 10th March 2013 at 20:07
True, Ernest, but the chips were just as good! I'd expected it to have changed completely but it was like walking into a time-warp, and I was 18-20 again, (wishful thinking!)


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th March 2013 at 22:41
Irene, is there any shop in Wigan that hasn`t changed? I very much doubt it.


Comment by Frances on 10th March 2013 at 22:53
Thank you Nev and Neil, your info is much appreciated.


Comment by Gerald Pilkington Canada on 11th March 2013 at 22:28
tables to sit outside and have a beer, what more could you ask for. dont remember that one. Dont remember many things these days.


Comment by David on 12th March 2013 at 10:42
Not far from here was Almonds Brewery - is it still there?


Comment by Roy on 12th March 2013 at 20:54
No David, it went in 1982. Go to ALBUM, PLACES, STANDISH and there is a pic of the brewery in a state of being demolished, probably there are more if you look.


Comment by cindy on 23rd March 2013 at 17:42
It used to be A Lion Brewery House The Brewery was taken over by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries.


Comment by Cullie2 on 10th May 2013 at 15:43
Dave Else Tanner in there?


Comment by Cullie2 on 10th May 2013 at 15:44
