Arkle (The), 105 Springfield Avenue (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageJune 1968. Image shows the newly built Arkle public house at number 105 Springfield Avenue, constructed in the late 1960s by Cameron's brewery - the first they had in Morley. A competition among the general public was held to choose a name for the pub. That favoured by the competition organisers was 'The Arkle'. This was to commemorate the enormous success that the great steeplechaser attained during the 1960s. (The horse itself was named after a mountain in Northern Scotland called Ben Arkle). Some years later, after a change of brewery ownership, its name was changed to 'The Springfield'. This has now been abandoned and the pub has reverted to its original name, 'The Arkle'.
