I started St Georges in 1950 and walked at walking day and lived in Vaughan St and I know there were a lot of pubs in the Scholes area but I can not recall these,I bet Cliff H will know come on Cliffy give us a clue.

I used to walk with St George's but don't remember the Bear's Paw being on the route. It could be St thomas cos Bear's Paw was on Chapel Lane. Dorothy Rigby was in my class at St Thomas and she lived there.
