Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

I spoke too soon, another pub I'm missing is The Prince of Wales on Addsets Street. Perhaps Peter or Terry could tell us where it was.

Skippy's tale of The Crown throws up another point, apparently pubs without a spirits license were called Beer Houses. I mentioned his post to my brother who held his 21st in The Crown and got their spirits from the Alex down the hill.The Massey family ran The Crown then.

Many years ago there was another beer house on Upwell Street called The Upwell Inn between Chambers Lane and Carlisle Street East.

Here's list of pubs within the parish of Grimesthorpe: (When I worra lad).

1) Wellington on Brightside Lane.

2) Wellington on Carlisle Road.

3) Victoria "

4) Hodson "

5) Crown "

6) Alexandra "

7) Prince of Wales on Addsets Street.

8) Who Can Tell on Botham Street

9) Hallcarr Tavern at t'other end of Grimesthorpe.

10) Sheffield Arms on Upwell Street.

11) Ball "

12) Bowling Green on Upwell Lane.

13) Beehive "

14) Firth Park Hotel on Page Hall Road.

And not forgetting Grimesthorpe WMC.

 

If you can think of anymore please let us know.

Hi cat631,

 

The Prince of Wales Feathers was on the corner of Adsetts Street and Clevedon Street.

 

The Magnet sign can be seen on this pic on a bracket on the left at the bottom of the hill on Clevedon Street in 1965. Suters shop was directly across the junction on the corner of the level bit Clevedon Street at the opposite side of Adsetts Street.....

Unfortunately I've not seen any other pics of the pub.

 

Here's the same type of two sided porcelain enamel Magnet Ales sign, from Britain, which someone apparently in New York has......

Just in case anyone is wondering why there is a smiley face instead of a No.8 at the side of The Who Can Tell. I haven't got a clue. I edited a spelling mistake, the No.8 disappeared and the smiley face refuses to go away.

Thanks for the Prince of Wales Feathers info. Feathers, well thats something else I've learned.

Hi cat631,

 

I've been wondering if Feathers is correct, but see the post below which seems to confirm that at least two others have the same recollection of how I recall The Feathers. My parents have passed on long ago. Wish I could ask them about their memories, like one does.....

My memory tells me that there was a Prince of Wales Feathers heraldic badge sign hung on the Adsetts Street side of the pub. However I was only 14 when I left Grimesthorpe in 1957, having lived on Adsetts Street since birth, so I can't be 100% sure. :huh:.

 

The name was/is used on lots of pubs. Here's one in London.....

Here's one in Birmingham not using the word 'Feathers' part of the name, but has a heraldic badge sign. Scroll about half way.....

Here's some info. about the heraldic badge.....

PS Have another look at my post 1719 pg 86 as I've put a photo on of a Magnet Ales sign. You should be able to see this one more easily :)

would that be the picture of the re-opening with the football players? yes we were the first managers in there, as it was always a tenancy before, we were in about 4 yrs, after moving from The Roman Ridge, and after Arbour we went in Timbertop ps that photo comes a lot inthe Star retro, it is also the first picture in a book called Sheffield landlords and Landladies

Terry -The Roman Ridge was my local when we lived at Maple Croft Rd from 1968 until we left Sheffield in August 1976. Were you there during that time?
