The photo is at least seven days ago, the pub is completely flattened now. David, the Irish contingent went in the 'Ye Old Original Seven Stars' across the road,and was nicknamed The Shamrock because of that, i can remember calling it that 50 years ago. Its name was later changed officially to The Shamrock.
Happy memories of Lord Barrington's Sunday night boogie. During demolition the old pub sign was briefly exposed. What next for the old site? O yea, of course. Silly me.
The new residents will be popping into Robinsons shop, the oldest shop in Lancashire, 100 years old last year.
what you on about Mick? - Brabin’s Shop and Tea Room has been at the heart of the community in Chipping for more than 300 years
In which part of Standish is this pub please David?
Roy - perhaps the Irish contingent were attracted over the road by the prominent shamrock depicted in the large terracotta plate on the pub's front gable. Its presence would seem to indicate that Irish money went into the building in the first place.
I've just sent a pic of the gable end to the Album.
The pub became St. Marie's social club and then briefly the Ashram Indian restaurant before its final incarnation as the Chinese Delight.
It's located Pat on Preston Road at the junction with Moore's Lane.
