PRESTON & LONGRIDGE RAILWAY HOTEL, Deepdale Street

PRESTON & LONGRIDGE RAILWAY HOTEL
10 or 11 Deepdale Street

Also several variations which include at least two or three of the above words -
ie. "LONGRIDGE RAILWAY TAVERN"

You can just see Halford's Workshops on Ribbleton Lane, behind the old
Preston and Longridge Railway Hotel.

MINE HOSTS:
1841                      Stephen Fawcett     House owned by Joseph Bray
1847 - 52              Thomas Bamber  d. 20.12.1852 aged 52 years. House still owned by Joseph Bray.
1852 - 53              Ann Bamber
1857 - 82              George Wilkinson
1882                     Jane Wilkinson
1883 - 90              George Banks
1890 - 92              Alice Banks
1892 - 1904          William Grantham
1907                     Richard Fazackerley
1910 - 11             Ephraim Ashton
1913 - 17             William Atkinson
1924                     Alice Sumner  -  According to a report in the Preston Guardian 3rd May 1924, the house
                                                   was owned by L.M.S. Railway Company, and it was said that within a 
                                                   radius of 240 yards, there were four fully licensed houses and three 
                                                   beer-houses. In a statement by the police, it was said that the facilities for
                                                   police supervision was good, but said that the premises were open so little
                                                   because the landlord went out to work, that the premises could be spared.
                                                   It would seem that post-First World War circumstances had seriously 
                                                   affected the trade of a number of houses.
*
At some point ownership of the house passed to:
The London and North West Railway Company, Euston Station, London,
&
The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company, Manchester
-
Whether that was as different times, or was joint ownership, I don't know.

DEATH - On the 20th vDecember 1852, at the

was an active and zealous member of the Masonic Order. 
He was much respected by the fraternity, and others
