Rose and Crown pub Slaithwaite
« on: Sunday 19 November 17 16:05 GMT (UK) »
Just curious to know the history of local hostelry the Rose and Crown at Cop Hill up above Slaithwaite, West Yorks.
Clearly it was once a row of small houses, probably with one occupant being a beer-house keeper at some point in the 19ThC. Probably because it was on the route taken by workers walking from home out " on the tops" to the textile mills in Marsden, needing to stop off for refreshment en route.
Can't seem to locate the houses on Ancestry census records 1841-1911.
Any help gratefully received.

Well it was in existence as a public house towards the end of the 19th century

It would appear that James Shaw was the first Licensee in 1832 who's family held residence for almost 100 years.

Thanks, folks. Just what I needed. Will be able to look further now.
Do we think that the inn was on one of the old routes north-to- south along the Pennines, like the Maythorn Way? Or would it just have been a workers' stop-off point?
