GLOBE TAVERN, Heatley Street

28 Heatley Street
- later 30 / 31 Heatley Street.
122, Corporation Street.

The latter address is a knock-down re-build of the Globe Inn.
The current one, below, carries the date 1892.
This wonderful image was taken by Linda Barton, Preston Historical Society.
Several attempts have been made in the last 10 years or so to revive the fortunes
of a very attractive building, but have met with disappointing results.
The Globe Tavern was rebuilt on the same footprint that it occupied on this sketch plan. Therefore, Corporation Street can be imagined running north to south between the eastern wall of Heatley Street Mill, and the western wall of the Globe Tavern.

The Heatley Street entrance.
Preston Chronicle  11th July 1846
Jane Ratcliffe, who had been a servant in the employ of Mrs. Taylor, 
formerly of the Globe Tavern in Heatley Street, but now of Great
Shaw Street, was charged with stealing a quantity of wearing apparel,
the property of her mistress.

A short time since, in consequence of something she had seen in the
prisoner's conduct, Mrs Taylor discharged her, but last week missed a 
number of articles, and informed the police of her loss.

It was discobered that on the 14th November, Ratcliffe had pawned the
flannel petticoat at the shop of Mr Lewis Taylor in Friargate, and she
was apprehended in the workhouse by PC Counsell. The petticoat was
produced and identified by Mrs. Taylor as her property.
The other articles had not been found.
She was sent to the House of Correction for 2 months.
