    I was asked this today.

    Are there any?

    Or are you counting continuing up Crosby road south etc northwards.

    if it's the proper dock road ie Regent Rd, then I'd have thought it was the one in Strand Rd...The Strand Rd hotel. think it has a different name now tho.

    there's nowt on the left until you turn into Strand Rd

    The first pub I can see on the left is across the Mersey (when standing on the bridge at Stanley Dock).

    Derby Arms, Mill Street. This was tinned-up 17/6/09. It closed a couple of months ago.
    The Parrot, Scotland Road. For Sale...Guide Price ?30,000+

    The Dead House. It was built circa 1961, and was always dead. It was predicted to be closed and never was while all the rest, more full pubs, closed. I find that strange about pubs. The small pub that has a few dedicated regulars, and appears dead, just keeps going...until now.

    Am I right in thinking that the Norris Green estate, was purposely built without a pub within it's boudaries.
    The Royal Oak being the closest !

    And I think William Brown Street from 1900 onwards was the only main thoroughfare without a pub or shop on it.

    Thanks Martin,

    Started to look through it before...loads of good shots of Liverpool city centre, and yes found a few Woolton ones so far..

    I wonder whose site it is, as it doesn't seem to say, but it is excellent.


    Thanks for the info.

    Default Stanley Road, Kirkdale, Update

    The Royal remains as a ruin, after making safe work was carried out.
    The William Shakespeare was due to re-open last weekend.
    The Pitch Pine has been sold by Punch, but will continue as a freehouse.

    Two pics of the Royal, one showing the burnt out inside
    The "Shakey" with new signs and unboarded last Friday
    The "Pitchy"

    The Old Roan on the corner of Copy Lane and Ormskirk Road. First licenced in 1620. In the 1800`s the manager built a smithy around the back with stables,the buildings are still there today.The base of the pub walls had rings set in for travellers to tie their horses to. Must have done good business as it was on a turnpike road

    This is a bit of a toughy, but has anyone perchance got a picture of the Vine Hotel, corner of Vine and Faulkner streets. This pub would have been demolished in the late 70's- early 80's

    There won't be any pubs left at this rate - 2 more torched - Seaforth this time.
    I've lost count now how many have been torched in the last month. On average 2 in nearly all districts ... let's see, West Derby, Huyton, Formby, Walton, where else have I left out ? The former Setter & Vine reduced to a shell and about to be demolished - what is going on !! ??

    The former Setter & Vine ( I think it had a more recent name but I don't know what it was).

    This is one of the many pubs burnt out during recent months.

    It looks like an ancient ruin on the horizon ! !

    Jeeze, looking through here you are wondering how many pubs are gonna be left. I remember going to pubs for dart matches and in those days the pubs were never empty. You had a pint on the way home, had some dinner, got changed and went back to the pub. These days even weekend business starts later and later.

    I always remember the Tetley huntsman with the monecule and pint in his hand so if he is still there he is well over 50 !
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    Don't think its been mentioned in this thread but the recently refurbished Copplehouse pub in Fazakerley closed suddenly three weeks ago.

    I pass it going to and from work and one afternoon it had been freshly boarded up!
