the pub you refer to is the swan hotel known locally as the blazing stump,it was supposed to have got its nickname from an old sea dog with a wooden leg who used to poke the coal fire with the same leg,the pub is on the wallasey.

Chetwyn Arms Bidston Road not far from the Wirral Ladies Golf Club, but on the opposite side, and was built to accommodate the Quarry workers before Flaybrick Cemetery was opened. It was converted into two cottages which can clearly be seen today
