The Clarence


I am an Officer for a Facebook page for pubs & breweries past & present in Blackburn.  I remember a pub called The Clarence on Stoneybutts in the middle of the shopping precinct (which didn't have shutters on it in those days) which closed in the early 80s. I think was a Thwaites tied house. It would be great if somebody could submit a photo of it.
Blackburn underwent comprehensive redevelopment in the Sixties & Seventies which resulted in old street names 
being incorporated into the new precinct.
It would appear that we had a Clarence Hotel on Lord Street which predates my time, being born in 1973.  The Clarence I am talking about is its replacement & Stoneybutts is an old street name which had disappeared off the map until the early 70s when that section of the precinct was built.
