Here's a pic. of the Black Horse on Church Rd. No.107. Not a very good one, since I really took it to show the location of the old Regent cinema.

The Black Horse pub is mentioned in the book Sidelights on Tranmere. The article on the small village quotes that the Black Horse Inn on Church Road near the top of Well Lane bore this date plate 1757.

Nice one - always wondered why the DIY shop was a differant age to the pub next door - that piccy brings back some painful memories as I ran into one of those trees a coupel of years ago when not paying attention when out for a jog.....

A man named S.G.Wildman wrote a book called 'The Black Horsemen' in which he claimed that there is an Arthurian link with old Inns bearing the Black Horse name.

I believe the writer was originally a teacher at Wirral Grammar School and lived in the Tranmere area. Perhaps he was inspired by this particular pub.

Photo of the Black Horse and the top of Well Lane in the 1940s, and also two rare pics of the original pub that the current one replaced in 1931.

Excellent pics Marty, the middle pic of pub with property close behind, any idea what road that property is in. It looks to close to be the present day road which i think is Wycherley Rd, first left going down Well Lane.


God help us,
Come yourself,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.

Judging from the 1930s OS map the building was a large outbuilding that stood on the far side of the yard behind the pub. It looks like some sort of carthouse to me.

Great photo's. If you look on Google Earth, there is a building behind the pub and at an angle to it. Wycherley Rd is further away and runs roughly parallel with Church Road.
Do you think the building bears a resemblence to the design of some of the Birkenhead Brewery pubs?
I notice that the adjoining building (on the north side, towards Birkenhead) has similar lettering in its ground floor windows. Was this also part of the pub. It's certainly on the land that the 'new' pub is built on.
