    Default UNSEEN AND UNPUBLISHED - THE COACH & HORSES - 11TH JUNE 1955

    Another LRO gem. Formerly a coaching house and site of a turnpike for the old stage coaches travelling out of Liverpool during the 19th Century, it was named the Low Hill Coffee House pre- 1880s and was a noted political house in the 1840s. At that time, land West of Hall Lane was used as a crciket ground whose team used the pub as their headquarters. East of Hall Lane was land used as a military parade ground until the 1880s when terraced property was built on it. In 1950 the Coach & Horses was managed by Randall McDonald and was in use as a pub into the 1980s until it was vacated and there was a change in usage. Currently a communication firm take residence in the property.

    The building demolished on the corner had originally been a beer house at No. 2 Low Hill whose manager in 1905 was William Hall. Adjoining it at No.4 was a dairyman and cow keepers premises owned by William Disley. The beer house ceased trading in the 1920s and in the 1950 No.2 was a fish shop. The Autolux taxi sign advertises a business located lower down on Kensington. The other businesses seen here in Kenny which are now replaced by 3 high council flats built in the late 1950s were: Miss Annie Tweedale, Newsagent. Samuel Black, Secondhand boot dealer. Albert Hancox, Tobacconist and Autolux Taxi Services.

    Additional information by Freddy O'Connor.

    Don't understand why you say these pics are unseen. I saw them a few years ago.

    Read the title, you aint seen the one dated 11th June 1955 before old bean. The first one is in Freddy O'Connors book (as credited) purely for comparison.

    ps, the 2nd one you have titled as Low Hill is in fact Kensington
