This is the location of the Arrowe Park Pub now, and was once called the Horse and Jockey. When it was revamped in (I believe) the 50's, it changed it's name to the Arrowe Park Pub and the Horse and Jockey was opened in Upton Village. I have another photo of this Horse & Jockey from even earlier (reaching close to the late 19th century!).. Anybody a regular here? wink

It looks to me the Arrowe Park Hotel was built behind the Horse & Jockey and then the H&J was knocked down to become a frontage for the Arrowe, I think I remember, built in 1937? on the front of the Arrowe Park Hotel but I wouldn't put money on it.

Put your money on it Bert ! You are quite right. Arrowe Park Hotel built 1937 behind the Horse & Jockey. To ensure the licence didn't lapse, they had to put up the towels after last orders in the "old" Pub and then open the new joint for business the following day! Only then could they blat the H&J.

Real beer at sensible prices then eh?

You'll find that the Coach and Horses, Plough and Farmers Arms in Moreton were all built behind the original buildings for the same reason, so that the license didn't laps. In most cases the front wall of the new Pub was as close to the old Pub as they could get it. That's why the Plough and Coach have 'roads' in front of them and the Farmer's car park is in front of it (You'll have to trust me on the Plough as it's now gone and is a Tesco Express)
