Victoria Inn from Lowtown
1981. View of the Victoria Inn looking from the direction of Lowtown. Straight ahead is Swinnow Road and right is the junction of Lowtown with Hough Side Road. It is believed that the Victoria Inn was built to mark the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. In the 1880s and 1890s there was a lively and varied programme of events here and several clubs and societies used the Victoria Inn as a meeting place. In the background at 195 Lowtown (Swinnow Road) The Britannia can be seen. This was formerly known as The King's Arms and therefore may date from the death of William IV in 1837. The inn changed its name to The Britannia when in 1881 the Britannia Cricket Club purchased the adjacent field. In the 1960s the pub underwent extensive alterations to become the establishment it is today. The woman with pushchair is crossing at the junction with Intake Road.
