Thornhill Arms

Date of photo: c1910

Picture source: Stewart Marsh

The Thornhill Arms was situated on Alport Lane. Pigotís Directory has it as being called the Marquis of Granby in 1828, but in the 1831 and 1835 editions shows it as having been renamed the William IV. It was in the hands of a George Woodward in all of those listings. Thomas Kenworthy was landlord from at least 1851 until his death in 1894 when his son and daughter-in-law, Frederick and Martha, took it on. By 1881 the pub had changed its name once again, to the Thornhill Arms. (The Thornhills were the family who lived at the nearby Stanton Hall.) Frederick died in 1920 whereupon Martha closed the pub permanently. She died in 1951 and the pub is now two residences - William IV House and Thornhill House.
