You Know You're From Middlewich When.... Facebook group. Our previous attempt to show you what the pub really looked like didn't quite work, as the slide in question was of dubious quality.
There are a lot of photographs of this popular Robinson's pub in existence but, as far as we know, very few in colour. This has led many people to believe that the pub was painted white for most of its life but, as can be seen here it was, at least in its last few years, a pleasing shade of lime green.
Note the yellow painted gate on the right where in 1959 Twinky, the Roberts household cat, made a bid for freedom on his way home from the vets after an operation. He stayed in the little passageway behind that gate spitting defiance for over two hours.
The Talbot is also mentioned in this posting. There's a lot of Facebook Feedback attached, so don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page. The whole of that posting needs to be reformatted, and I'll get round to it asap. In the meantime, please bear with me.
This particular photo was taken from the corner of the Seabank car park and the old GPO telephone box which once stood there is just creeping into shot on the right. Now even the chrome and glass BT box which replaced it has gone, a victim of the spread of the mobile phone.
