PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Barry Smith and Paul Skelton

Earliest 1823+

(Name from)

Carpenter's Arms

Latest 1832

(Name to)

Queen Street

 

Some of the old writers were able to say a great deal with a few well chosen words. The author will not be alive to-day but living relatives will forgive me I hope for quoting this example.

 

Nearby to Albion Place stood a pub called "The Albion", later renamed the "Carpenter's Arms". We were informed by the same author that the street was named after the pub. I did not pursue that any further but the more zealous amongst you might bear in mind that a "Carpenter's Arms" later became "The Cause is Altered".

 

The only dates that I can tie up for this pub is between 1823 to 1832. Earlier than 1823 I believe the pub was called the "Blacksmith's Arms" and after 1832 the "Cause is Altered." (Paul Skelton.)
