Sally Up Steps, Bolton, Lancashire

 

 


 
The Sally Up Steps was situated at 99 Chorley Old Road.
 
My grandfather's elder sister ran the "Sally Up Steps" pub in Bolton before the First World War.  I remember as a child him telling me that she had a parrot that could whistle like the tram conductors and stop the tram outside the pub!  Apparently the parrot also used to drink beer, get drunk and then fall off its perch, when its noted phrase was "Polly Poorly".
