Bridge End Pub, Helmshore....

Helmshore's Bridge End Pub.... Its over 20 years ago since I reroofed this pub for Wilsons Brewery and I think the landlord at the time was Alan Moss whom also used to have the Crown on Bacup Road, Rawtenstall (opposite the Job Centre Building)... Winker was also a landlord at one time... here's four photos of the pub. (The photo which shows handcarts is from somewhere between the years 1888 and 1897) and also I have included a more recent one from about 5 years ago...also there is a vintage photo of Station Road. There must be lots of old stories about the Bridge End, and it would be really great to hear them! (Click over photos to enlarge).
