Blackburn Arms, Warrington, Lancashire



The Blackburn Arms was situated on the Market Place. The publican in 1895 was Thomas Crompton.

Known to us as the Cock & Trumpet, it had a secret door inside that looked like a wall and there was a cocktail lounge upstairs. It was a rough place with blood on the door handle and a fight every night. We'd see flashers going in with yellow sou'wester macs on and the ladies would giggle. We were 12 when we used to go in and there was no problem with getting served.
