looking for a pub name.....Morning Lane by Sue (Member 10279905) on 12-Nov-2012

Im looking for the name of the pub that was at the bottom of Ponsford Street leading on to Morning Lane. Can recall there being one in the late 50's early 60's...remember seeing loads of motor bikes outside so might have been a bikers pub.

Anyone out there have any clues as to the name.
  • Re: looking for a pub name.....Morning Lane by cjb (Member 10097797) on 20-Jun-2015
    Was that the place that reopened as a Silk Screen Printers ?

  • Re: looking for a pub name.....Morning Lane by Susan (Member 10301488) on 3-Sep-2015

    Could the pub you enquired about be the Bridge House Tavern? Hope this helps

  • Re: looking for a pub name.....Morning Lane by Maureen Andrews (Member 10301504) on 18-Sep-2015
    The pub at the bottom of Ponsford Street (known to me as Bridge Street) was The Duchess. It was just on the bend opposite the flats in Morning Lane.
