C is for Clarkes Arms

The Clarkes Arms is a Wilsons' pub on the corner of Stockport Road and Lumn Road. Whilst a number of nearby hostelries have closed in recent years this one has survived.

It derives its name from Captain Clarke - for details of the man see Old Hyde.

A contribution to ABC Wednesday.


  1. It all sounds so elegant, and to think it is just a pub. It is beautiful. Here is a pub "Greensboro, NC USA" style. We should both take "inside" photos now! Happy ABC Wed. I almost used it for "C" is for canine.

  2. This used to be my local once upon a time. I recall that it nearly went out of business and there was talk of forming a syndicate to keep it open - a sort of locals' local as it were.

  3. lets hope it stays open in the future... to many wonderful things already have been gone... sadly enough.

    Good choice for this weeks letter!

    Have a nice abc-day / - week
