  1. Is there any information on landlords of the Haigh Tree Inn after 1951? I'm looking for one called Groobey.
  2. I'm trying to find out just who had 46 Taptonville Road built, even though it's datestone says 1852 I cannot find and reference to it in my 1852 directory, I know in 1878 a gardener was living there, the property may have been part of a long gone bigger house. Has anyone any clues about the history of this building and the Taptonville name itself.
  3. Would it be ok to use this information in my article?
  4. I wanted the information for my next pubs article but the year I'll be doing is 1852 which is a few years before the Turf Tavern was opened so I will have to omit that one and put in the Union on Furnace Hill.
  5. This explains a lot, thanks very much.
  6. I'm finding it hard to find any reference to The Turf Tavern on West Bar, I've looked in the 1852, 1862 and 1878 directories and there's no listing, what does fox me is the change of postal numbering, it's given as No 77 but at that number no pub or Beerhouse.
  7. The Vulcan effigy was on Hornes Gents Outfitters, people seem to forget that, it's always called Castle House, ok it was but Hornes is never mentioned.
  8. The buildings have gone, on the far end of the church wall you can see a building, that's still there.
  9. In reply to the email from the team, the photo shows Campo Lane in a slower age. w

  13. I know George Bassett, Confectioner, lived on Endcliffe Crescent but I don't know which one was his, In my directories it just gives his name and Endcliffe Crescent, I want to write an article about him and his home so if anyone can point me to the correct house I would be very grateful.
  14. Good luck Hilldweller.
  15. I can remember Beryl Reid giving an interview about her life and she did remark about the Palace that her dressing room was something to be desired as the Rats would make it a habit of eating her knickers.
