Why call a Hindley pub after Lord Nelson.


Comment by dave on 16th November 2014 at 00:21
the blue room 70-80


Comment by Jonno on 16th November 2014 at 01:08
Good pic of a good pub.You're a long way from home with this one aren't you Alan?

Used to have blue strip lights and your clothes always looked has though they where covered in dandruff


Comment by Aubrey on 16th November 2014 at 09:51
A very good bowling green at the back


Comment by Giovanni on 16th November 2014 at 09:57
Looks a decent pub. Never patronised it...another on my list to visit and sample their Bellini!


Comment by Bob on 16th November 2014 at 10:46
Mick if you look at history and the time this pub was refurbished you will find out why.


Comment by Loz on 16th November 2014 at 11:13
Well you would, Giovanni! It's your surname!


Comment by Giovanni on 16th November 2014 at 12:21
Salute Loz!


Comment by Marcus on 16th November 2014 at 12:53
A good photo of an excellent pub - of which our town is running tragically short. One of my favourites on a sunny summer's evening - the gentle smack of bowls from the green at the rear and an ice cold pint of cider .... Ahhhh !!!!


Comment by Colin Barnes on 16th November 2014 at 13:02
Just to make things more complicated there were two Lord Nelsons in Hindley.The other waqs situated half way up Castle in road.Locals called them Top Nelson and Bottom Nelson.Top Nelson closed in the 60s and was bought by LE Agency owned By Bill Leyland.


Comment by Cyril on 16th November 2014 at 15:20
Remember those lights Peterp, it was so funny watching folks as they came in trying to brush off the white flecks from their clothes with their hands.


Comment by Giovanni on 16th November 2014 at 16:53
A game of bowls on a warm summer evening and a cold pint for company. A Bellini doesn't go somehow!
Thanks for that delightful scenario Aubrey/Marcus.


Comment by ann21 on 16th November 2014 at 18:17
alan, why have you strayed from Standish


Comment by Alan on 17th November 2014 at 03:39
Ann21, you can take photos from anywhere as long it's got the Wigan connection.


Comment by jimmyn on 17th November 2014 at 05:07
The top Nelson was called " The Admiral Lord Nelson"


Comment by bill on 17th November 2014 at 16:14
Every time I hear 'All the young dudes' or 'Layla', I think of that dark room in the 'Nello', as we called it.
A visit may be overdue. Not been in there, must be nearly 40 years.


Comment by Keith Guest on 17th November 2014 at 19:11
The top Nelson was called "The Lord Nelson Inn" and the bottom Nelson is called "The Lord Nelson Hotel"
