#370367 - 3rd Dec 2009 1:28pm Where is this pub?

^Picture taken in 1960.

I've always presumed that this Pub was the old 'Nags Head' on Rake Lane, Wallasey but the licensee of the Pub says it is not. John Humphreys, the licensee, asked regulars and all confirmed that its not the Pub that once stood where Stanleys Cask stands today (Rake Lane). The Pub being demolished and the new Nags Head being built a little further down.

In a book called "Wallasey From Old Photographs" it does have the same photo listed as the Nags Head on Rake Lane. All very confusing.

Anyone shed any light on it?

The general feeling is its a "Nags Head" in a totally different part of England! For years this picture has floated about and people have said its the old Nags Head on Rake Lane...but...could that be a mistake that has continued on for some years? Looking at the buildings next to the Pub they don't fit what was there before!

It's a bobby dazzler!

I was going with that thinking as the design is similar. The building to the right would then be the Phoenix Cinema and the buildings to the left being demolished to make way for a car showroom. Without pictorial evidence I can't verify that thinking.

...but...there is this picture :-

Paul , I have a faint memory of a very similar type of Pub up on Moreton Cross, years and years ago, when I was a kid. Haven't been up there for ages so don't know what the cross is like now.

That could be The Grange you are referring to?

The only one I can think of that even comes close to the design is the Plough Inn in Moreton



Will have to dig out some maps...

That's not the one Paul, I distinctly remember a Pub with mock Tudor frontage, the missus remembers it too, it's just a bit hazy about the exact configuration of it. It's just that it was so impressive at the time. When we saw it we knew that the shore wasn't far away. Hopefully someone will come up with a solution. Even the candy twist chimney stacks are striking, a lovely building.

Bandy, your thinking of the Coach and horses on Moreton Cross or is it just the Coach.
