Mount Pleasant Inn, Broughton(Moss?)
« on: Monday 21 September 09 17:41 BST (UK) »
My GGGrandfather, John Edwards kept the Mount Pleasant Inn, Broughton (Moss?) in 1871. Does this pub still exist? Where can I find more about this pub? Are there any old photos available or any books etc. about the history of this area?

Many thanks
John

There is a Mount Pleasant Inn in Llay which is 3 or 4 miles south of Broughton and seems to be up-for-sale:-

Don't know if it's the same place. Does it say on the census the name of the road/street that it's on or give any clue to adjacent streets?

Thanks for your reply Gwyn. Unfortunately my Mount Pleasant pub is not the one in Llay.
The next entry to the pub ,in the 1871 census, is Cerney. I do not knoe if this is a street or area or what!

Thanks for your interest
John

There is a Cerney Road in Moss in the area of Broughton and Brymbo which looks to be the right road.

Can't find any photos through google but there are a couple of mentions of the Mount Pleasant Inn, Moss on the BBC website which you may well have seen already:-

There is a website for The Brymbo Heritage Group which covers Moss. Someone there might be able to help with info on the pub:-

have sent a personal message

The Pub is definatley not open now, and I can`t remember it being so in the last 30 years, but of course could be wrong.
From a local history map I have where it is marked and named, it looks to be somewhere close to here. x on the aeriel shot. Just before St Pauls Church, Broughton. You can see the graveyard to the left.

Just checking that you're definitely not talking about the Mount Pleasant Inn in Llay?  Only if you are we share a common interest as my GGGrandfather, Benjamin Jones, was the Inn keeper of the Llay pub in 1891!

Looking at the Llay pub on Google Earth, the bus stop in front is described as 'Burton, Mount Pleasant Inn' but not entirely sure what that means (could it just be the route that particular bus takes?)

Anyway thought I'd mention it on the off chance we were talking about the same place.
