Wine Lodge, 1 Well Street
|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
The bottom of Burges in 1927, with Well Street in the distance viewed from Hale Street, here showing buildings before the demolition for the new Corporation Street in 1931. The Unicorn occupied the building here shown as W.H. Crofts on the left, and the building on the corner was the Wine Lodge, formerly the Eagle Vaults. See the 1914 town planning map below.
A place for drinking wine, I guess.
Until 1881 this was the EAGLE VAULTS.
The old pub was demolished for the making of Corporation Street c1929, and the new pub, also named the WINE LODGE, took its place nearby on the corner of Burges and Corporation Street.
A planning map of 1914 proposing the building of the yet un-named Corporation Street and how it would affect the bottom of the Burges, leading to the demolition in 1929/30 of the original Wine Lodge and adjacent buildings.
