Ive had a little Trouble Splitting the Original Topic so ive had to Quote some of your posts, so you can see who said what.

Ive updated the Index Page with the few new ones too.

I will now Link the Index Page with the Running Topics.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Can anybody tell me the name of the Pub opposite Seacombe Ferry which was demolished in the 1970's? I think locally it was nicknamed "Breezes". Thanks

Okay ive added a good handful more which ive updated in the index page for the pubs.

Feel free to add story's photos experiences about the pubs we have listed, it all adds to our History.

any names and dates would be great, landlords names.
Why it closed / demolished ?

was it a good Pub to visit.

Big thanks to derekdwc for starting the ball rolling on this one smile

It was called the Argyle, but as it replaced the 'old' Argyle (see here) it was often referred to as the 'new' Argyle.

The list was provided by derekdwc, i'm merely the middle man.

If anything is a Great Starter, were already adding to it.
As Uptoncx is doing he's making the topic prefixing with the
next number in the list.

If you can remember any of the names parkgater just post them
in this topic with what ever details you can remember
and we can get them added to the list smile
