FLETCHERS' ARMS, Fletcher Road

161 Fletcher Road  /  17 Irwin Street
later 42 Fletcher Road.
The Fletchers' Arms is the pale building, just beyond the motor vehicle. Perhaps a better one will turn up! The building on the left is the Wellington Inn, Fletcher Road, and the photograph
comes courtesy of Meanderman (Harry), from his Flickr Collection.

1853                    John Aspden
1855 - 59            Thomas Lawson
1861 - 69  For some reason the pub seems to have been called the "Fylde Tavern" during these years, 
                 despite there being another Fylde Tavern in Friday Street. The fact that it happened twice
                 would seem to remove mere error as the reason.
