The Albion



The Albion on Penny Meadow has been a fully licensed public house since 1837. It was used as a venue for Coroner's inquests and also for more pleasant functions such as workmen's dinners.

In 1858 Mary Hinds was given three months hard labour for stealing items from the landlord's wash room.

  1. I have never ever been in there, not once.
    In the early 1970's I must have passed the pub hundreds of times when I went out with Helen Hindley.

  2. Must be like a community center...I like your photo very much, what with the muted colors and the light striking the building.

  4. In the photo of the Albion, the building behind the 'albion' was built by my father, Ben Mellors. It was used as a bakery until 1984.
