The forty foot is still open Jane, or it was before the pandemic.

My wife was born and lived near Sutcliffes shop Ruthin St less than 100 yds away. Nobody ever said where the name came from .

  A forum contributor ( Lazarus ) research this and found no evidence that this was so. However he say a pub called Why Not on Clun St  (near Gower St )was named after 1894 National Grand winner. Maybe the story got transferred.

That's what I thought Pads.  Just wondering if it has gone forever.

I used to live on Alexandra Road until I married in 1970, the Myrtle was my family's local.

Eric and Ellen Staniforth were landlord and landlady with their children, 3 girls if I remember correctly.

As a child I spent many happy hours in the back room with their children whilst the adults were in the pub.

We attended the Coronation celebrations there in 1953 where there was a big party for the kids in the upstairs room.

The family adults  usually spent New Years Eve there whilst us kids were looked after at home then the adults would arrive in time for the letting in of the New Year.

They came home carrying crates of beer between them, pop and crisps for the kids and we all had heaps of sandwiches, homemade pickles etc. whilst the party including neighbours continued until the early hours.

My uncle arranged a charity "do" there in the upstairs rooms where there was a stage, lots of musical acts and a sort of pantomime, this was in the 50's. 

There was never any trouble, bad language or ill feeling in all the years I lived there from late 40's to 1970.

Regards,

Duffems

Washford Arms.

The building is still there. Reduced to two storeys, and suffering the indignity of fake stone cladding.
