aww it looks too little to be a hotel...pretty though :)
Is this the one on Haigh Road or somewhere else, it's just that what looks like a railway embankment at the rear; and I'm trying to think where that could have been.
What looks a bit like a railway embankment is a church, I think "Our Ladies." It is in Haigh road .The new pub is larger ,and now a restaurant .
Sorry... I just had to laugh at the thought of a church being named after "Our Ladies"... are these the three old ladies who got stuck in a lavatory?
I THINK THE REV LONG SHOULD SHOW SOME RESPECT.THE CHURCH
IS ACTUALLY OUR LADY OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
I can make it out now, thanks Ron.
The garage and double gates bottom right were part of local builder Tommy Hastings yard.used to load up there in a morning.

Any way back to the photo .Red Lion was always called Owd Joe's. the last landlord was named Coleman.came of ST Elizabeths rd had sons Ron.Brian,Jeffery.was landlord when re-opened for a short time.
Our Ladies, should have read Our Lady's Church and to the Rev Long, "Our Lady" is the mother of Jesus, nothing to do with toilets!!!!!
This pub was demolished in 1967 and the new one seen today built the following year - the first landlord/landlady of the new pub were Mr & Mrs Johnson, previously managers of the Beehive in Horwich.
Beg to differ Gary the Colemans were the 1st have taken over were they left of when it was owd joe's and the were definatly pumping ale in june of 67
My sister got married in june 67 had her reception at tha Balcarres. went with a couple of mates to the Red Lion for a pint.definately the new 1 was open in 67
Alice and Jack - I've been looking in a couple of old diaries. Both of you are right. The old pub had gone in 1965 and the new one was built almost immediately..my memory is less reliable these days - too long away from Aspull!
The houses behind the pub are on Reservoir St , Our Ladies church is on the corner of Reservoir St and Haigh Rd .
The owd Joe you refer to was my grandfather, with whom I spent many a brilliant weekend there in the 1950s with the old stables at the back and the yard. the Brewers name was Magee's
Peter the name Magees brings back memories, Magee marshall.
My great grandparents lived in the Red Lion at Haigh in the late 1880 - 1910? Thomas and Elizabeth Henry. Is this the building that they lived in? Any information regarding would be appreciated. Thank you.
the red lion at haigh should be refered to as the red lion at aspull. its actually within the aspull/ haigh boundary.comments to correct me ,if i am wrong ,please.
