The Star

Picture source: Bryn Clinch


 
The Star was situated on Milton Road. This motorcycle shop, quite unbelievably, was once an `Ale House` known as `The Star`. I`m sure that many will doubt this, but I was employed in this building for a number of years, when it was a printing works. Built as three cottages in 1885, shortly afterwards two were converted into `The Star`. It subsequently became a Co-op grocery & butchers s, a printing works and is now a motorcycle shop. It is now the only building left standing in Milton Road and has recently been enlarged. This short history was, in the last few days, confirmed by my former employer who owned the property and, of course, had a copy of the deeds. It`s my opinion that very few, if any, know that `The Star` existed. I have posted a similar photo, with a more detailed history, on a couple of local Forums as I have been unable to find any reference to this pub. Curiously, there has been no response whatsoever. I recently spoke to an 86 year old who lived in the area who had no knowledge of the ale house.
