Hen and ChickensField Lane
The pub closed in Silver Jubilee year 1935 with the opening of the Jubilee Inn on Appleton/Hatton Hill Roads. The Hen and Chickens finished its days being used as a 'Lab' for the Liverpool Tannery that stood opposite the pub. The original entrance to the Jubilee Inn was on the Field Lane side with the decorative door entrance lintel still visible depicting a 'Hen and Chickens'. (Dave Ellison took photos of the old entrance) Having the 'Hen & Chickens' on the entrance would suggest the intended name of the new pub was the 'Hen & Chickens' but changed the name because of it being Silver Jubliee Year.
