Town Street, The Barleycorn
Description:
1st January 2010. View of Town Street showing the Barleycorn public house, which has closed down in the centre. On the right are two vacant premises displaying 'For Sale' notices. To the left is a row of houses numbered (from right) 116 to 130.

Comment:
The 2 "vacant premises" formed part of the pub in the later years (see sign on right).It was a local haunt of mine, off & on for years (mid 80's onwards) Looking back at earlier pics of the site, it would seem the right hand side of the building was double in size & was originally the Bretherick & sons building, this must have been partially dimolished post 1981, as a pic from that year shows it clearly still fully standing.

Below the for sale sign is the archway which originally led to Bretherick's workshop. To the right of the archway was Brethericks shop. I think it was an ironmongers shop and they also sold tiled fireplaces. At some point the small shop adjoining the main shop was taken over. This was a bakery run by Mr & Mrs Wild who lived in a charming cottage next door to their shop. Brethericks was later taken over by someone called Limb. I think this would have been some time in the 1950's.
