There was a pub called the Plough. It is now a house. Not sure if that is what you are talking about but it was the house just before the car wash place going towards Wallasey village.

In the olden days and no I am not quite that old, pubs didn't necessarily have a cellar but a shed/room at the back in which to store barrels etc. Don't forget before beer pumps it would have been served from enamel jugs and you needed to have it quite close by.

Darley Dene was used by the Cheshires. My grandmother lived at 25 Breck Rod. The soldiers would enter her garden at the back and sneak out through her front gate to avaoid their own sentries. They would go to the Pool Inn Pub and leave her beer and crisps on the way back. My mother's first husband was on leave from the army and in 25 Breck Road the night Darley Dene was hit. Itg was a heavy raid and indendaries were buring everywhere. He ran over to Butlers Garage to get a stirrup pump but they had let them all out and suggested he went to Darley Dene. He ran over to the middle of the road and saw the land mine come down on a parachute. He thrwe himself flat. The comb in his breat pocket was reduced to dust bt the shock wave. When he lookmed up most of Darley Dene was gone as wasd the roof of 25 Breck Road. The damage to the memorial was caused at this time. Incidentially them memorial was moved again in the early seventies when the new bridge was built . It was west of where it is now. Maybe twenty foot. The dead soliders were laid out in a field at the back of 26 Breck Road. They are buried in Landican cemetery (turn left as you enter and you will see a small military cemetery). two of them are Royal Artillery. They were prisoners un der escort and were lodged by the military police for the night at Darley Dene. Anolther casuality was my mother's cat who used to visit the soldiers. He was never found again.

I made a few errors in typing (how do I edit?) I said that the soldiers were laid out in the field at the back of 26 Breck Road. That should have been 25/27 which was the old Plough Inn but by the date of the air strike on Darley Dene (12/13th march 1941) it had been converted into two separate dwellings 25 and 27. 25 was the original building and is around the side/back and 27 is the Victorian frontage built onto the Pub. In recent years 25 has been converted into two flats. Prior to that it had hardly been touched by the 20th century and still had no bathroom and an outside toilet. It also had a History that a former landlord took his own life their around the 1890/s - 1900s. It ceased to be a Pub around 1920. It was haunted (maybe still is?) by a large black dog like creature, unexplained pillars of smoke and starnge lights. It had been exorcised a n umber of times in the 1950's.

My Grandad's name was Alfred Downie.He was a Scotsman and went down the cellar hoping that a bottle of whiskey might have been over-looked. His wife and children waited expectantly and were horrified to see two horns appear. Then he came up with the antelope's head. The entrance to the cellar was in a room to the right of the front door of number 25. My auntie who lived in number 25 until a few years ago refused all requests for anyone to go down in the cellar. During the war my mother and other members of the familyh were in the Anderson shelter which was in the back garden of 25. They heard a few very close explosions as bombs fell and then a huge bang, the shelter shook and they heard bricks falling. My Mum's first husband said 'Don't tell Mum but the house has gone!'. In the morning they were amazed to see it still standing but there was a big hole nearbye and a bomb had burrowed under the shelter and not exploded. So they had to move out quick. My Grandfather was at sea and wrote home about how he would 'do up the old Plough after the war'. It was not to be. He was killed in Tripoli harbour when an LCT barge blew up. He is buried in Tripoli Cemetery.

Facinating, they had a lucky escape there, one cannot imagine what it was like in the war unless having been there. Your memories give an insight to what it was like then.
Whereabouts was darley Dean from 25 breck road?
What stands in it's place now?

Why is the roof like that?
Is that from when it was bombed?
