This was built before Wimpy started making cardboard boxes, your micra would become a nano or a pico if you hit that building with it!

New Dock Hotel (Blood Tub)
Does anyone know if it ever served as a hotel
possibly only called a hotel to get past the serving on a Sunday laws that were about ages ago
Maybe the Ilchester square remains attached to it belonged to the pub
We know the 1st tier part above the pub was lived in by the manager recently

The Flats above were used for the Brewery and were rent free for ex-managers or Brewery Employee's
that were time served.
The First Floor out of the 3 would be for the current Manager
with an internal stair way to that level. (No longer Exists)

We were not sure when Ownership from "Birkenhead Brewery to Higgsons Brewery" happened.

That's a garage which had an 'up and over' door on it, and the pub toilets were either side of it. That part was built on after the demolition of the rest of Ilchester Square. I'm not sure what the back looked like originally, but I think it was just a wall and a back yard for the pub.

Just round the corner into Tyrer Street there were 3 shops. There was a Dairy type shop, a sweet shop and a chippy.
