The Crown Public house is still trading but it has had some major alterations both inside and outside

The Commercial Hotel  in Page Lane has now closed down and is all boarded up. That was the only pub in Page Lane.

Both these pubs can be viewed on the google street map

Jan, you should consider trying to get a copy of this book all about the pubs in Widnes going back 250 years.  Sadly cant find y copy at the moment to do a look up

Hi
The Crown Inn is still standing,however it has been altered.
If you google Birchfield Road,Widnes you will get a street view.

Regarding an old photo you might strike lucky on google images.

Hope this helps

The man and women in the door way was Samuel Thompson and his wife Jane Ann Thompson (nee Penney) who are my 2x Gt Grandparents and  took over from Mr Wade as publican in 1901. The girl to the left of Samuel is Jane Nevitt.
Hope that helps anyone :D

Dear Widnes Pub people!

A complete long shotbut here gies. Does anybody have information on the Peck family that lived in Widnes (at least in 1891)?  They moved to Penketh, Warrington and many years later my Mum & Dad ran an off licence in Warrington for 30 years
