Griffin Inn Pub. Eccleston,Church Lane
Eccleston, 1950s
Originally called The Magpie, after a magpie on coat of arms of Hugh de Ecclestone, Lord of The Manor. A Coaching Inn..In the 1600s..Changed to Griffin when Samuel Taylor bought the Eccleston Hall estate..In the 1950s there were 3 separate doors, the "bar", the "outdoor"and the "best side".
As children we would take some empty bottles back to the "outdoor" dept and get a few pence..
