I remember going in the Bankes Arms about
1970 which I think was the next one down
from the Wheatsheaf and also I seem to
recall a Red Lion across from the New Star
although could only legally enter the
premises in 1971!

Not forgetting the Trencherfield.
The Golden Lion was the other side of the bridge next to the Raven.

The reason I said below the bridge, on the other side.
Usually when you ask, the Bankes Arms is missed
I always knew the Queens as "the pillars"

You must have been right rio caroni I always get mixed up with the two lion pubs one before bridge one after.Cant remember The Trencherfield. But being near mill one would assume you are right Art.

It was about where Middleton & Woods is now. Right next to the mill with some big advertising hoardings alongside.
Ive had a pint or two in there with a Mr W Boston & friends..

The Grapes was at the top of Clayton Street where Gordon's second hand car sales pitch is now. It was demolished about the time that Wallgate became a dual carriageway and Gordon Ford's had their new showroom built to replace the one at the top of Miry Lane.
Although not on Wallgate I did frequent the Buck 'ith Vine down Clayton Street run by Ellen Picton, a true traditional boozer.
