    Default Anyone remember Throstles Nest?

    NO! Not the pub!, the little road in Walton, where Sainsburys is now. There was a little old pub called The Stanley, with a coal fire and a 'snug'. and next to that was the old picture house, I think it was the Atlas, Long since closed down when I was a kid, we used to cut between the Plough and the Atlas, down Throstles nest and then turn into Beaconsfield Road, it was like steppin back in time, it was a little cobbled street full of two up two downs and old gaslamps as I remember, I used to get the wierdest feelin as I walked into that road, on my way to Wally all park, it was like I had gone into another era!! I was so sad when they pulled it all down, some things should be kept for posterity!

    I bet you weren't expecting anyone to have a photo?
    Throstles Nest ran behind the Atlas cinema.
    This is the site of the Atlas, so this is Throstle's Nest.
    July 1986.

    I remember that well.I lived on the estate up Cavendish Drive.
    It was a shame about those old houses,but they were left to rot for too long and with the surrounding factories the place became infested with rats.I seem to remember there was one old woman living there who refused to move.Her house was left standing as the others were being torn down.

    Default Yes there were two Throstles Nests

    These posts take me back. I worked in Walton Hospital between 1970 and 1982 and the old Atlas Cinema and the Throstles Nest did run in between the Cinema and pub. I am sure the Atlas was still standing but was derelict and was demolished. It was a really spooky little place. It was more of an alleyway than anything else. I used to go for a walk through it and wander around to the old closed Jewish Cemetery thats near the bottom of Stalmine Road. The Throstles Nest and the Cemetery always felt a bit other worldly, like being back in another time.

    The Throstles Nest Pub was one of my Dads old Boozers and was close by St Anthonys Church. Thanks for photo. Great stuff.

    Does anyone remember the Soap works that stood in between the Atlas and Cavendish Drive?
