HESKETH ARMS and CEMETERY HOTEL, New Hall Lane

HESKETH ARMS and CEMETERY HOTEL
Variously as:  Blackburn New Road
Cemetery Gates
421 New Hall Lane
*
Taken from "The Builder" of December 14th 1861
"The black parts of Preston."

......................At last, after passing a vacant plot with a board
notifying that it is building land to let, we come to a group of
ecclesiastical domestic buildings and the cemetery gates.
We take the former to be the Superintendent's lodge, but
we are mistaken. It is the "HESKETH ARMS and  CEMETERY
HOTEL"!   For a hotel to be so close to the lodge and entrance
gates of a spacious cemetery of 50 acres, with three chapels in it, 
is an innovation for which we were not prepared.

I'm not sure why they gave the address 'Cemetery Road.'
It's not the only occasion either, but 'Cemetery Road' was never
applied to any road close to this hotel.
