Would be interesting to call in and see if I can spot any changes since my last visit in 1972? Bitter was 11p a pint. DeAr say that has increased. Might make a day of it, start at the PA, then the Stanley and then the Dale in before I to the Float. It's a while since I have been down that way.

I remember it in the 60's as being a co-op. Apparently, there is an underground stream running beneath it.

I used to play in bands, and I played at both the float and the football club with my band ...Carol was a very nice woman...Don would also quite regularly ring into radio merseyside for their phone-ins but I haven't heard him for a very long time....give him my regards (my name is Dave)

Yes he is still over there.
