HUNT'S TAVERN, North Road

HUNT'S TAVERN
Park Lane, (North Road)
*
It would seem from the 1841 Census that these premises
were situated between Great George Street and Meadow Street,
on the east side of North Road.
*
Probably synonymous with "Machine Makers' Arms"
later the "New Inn"
which were situated on the southern corner of Great George Street.
*
In the Preston Chronicle of 25th May 1839, there was
a reference to 'the late Hunt's Tavern' in North Road.
*
Almost certainly the 'Hunt' referred to was Henry 'The Orator' Hunt,
the controversial Liberal MP for Preston in the early 1830's.
*
MINE HOST:
1839   Mr. Eccles
*
