White Horse


Today's glimpse at the world of Ashton under Lyne shows the White Horse pub at Cockbrook.

The White Horse opened in 1868 as a beer house but its licence was upgraded to allow it to sell wine four years later. It didn't get a full licence (i.e. to sell spirits as well) until 1956.

It would be an unremarkable building if it were not for the splendid glazed tiles that embellish the lower storey.

See Google Street View of this location.

I apologise to regular followers of this blog that I have not been able to post many images in recent weeks.

  2. The tiles are indeed splendid. Do you know how old they are? It looks as if they are in good (and original) condition.
