No pictures, but looking at this 1910 map, the bridge spanned about 12 rail tracks. Is it all gone now?

No mate, we went through it because the bridge ain't there any longer wink

The old cast iron bridge pillars were on the ground not far away.

Yeh the pillars are still there, they are down the path, away from where the bridge was. The guys at the tram museum told me that they are huge and the council or whoever dont want to move them because they are so big...

I hope that this new lead will help because im sure that a huge bridge such as this would definately have some coverage when it was built. Ill keep digging for now...

There gone now, but on some maps the bridge is still there, and people everyday are coming down bridge street thinking that the bridge is still there lol. Its funny watching them driving up to it, then having to reverse out

I know its been a while but I re started my research today. After the omission of the public house sign on the old colonial on a 1912 map I think it was, it had me wondering as to whether it wasn't a public house for a period.

However, after looking through the Gore's street directory, the place is still listed as a pub? Is it possible that the map surveyors made a mistake. The guys at the Archive centre assure me that they rarely make mistakes but I cant think of any othr reason why they would'nt put it as a Public House.

Its a mystery.....

Pictures of the new pub will follow shortly, plus an old brochure for the theatre which we found behind an old wall

Hi i used to live here 78-87 ,looking at your pictures above it has changed so much that entrance was never there it looks like they have knocked through from ladies toilet
Bennyboy that stained glass window i was on about to you was to the left of the entrance door on your picture

mum reckons a historian told her years ago when he was writing a book that the angel was oldest pub and then the grapes was second oldest
we have a book somewhere that mentioned a murder there in the 1860's will dig it out
