  • This pub is due for demolition shortly. It had a long history, being on the grounds of the old farm house for the Cherry Tree Farm estate. The basement is reputed to be haunted, by the tenant Joseph Adshead who found his daughter had hung herself from one of the beams. Lee Battersby (Apr 2012) My grandfather, Robert (not Joseph) Adshead farmed at Cherry Tree until it was bought by compulsory purchase order just after the war and before at least one of his sons, my father, Arthur, had returned from Burma. Newspaper articles letters give local outrage at this decision. His brother Alec, had been left to run the farm. Alec and his older brother Haydn lived at 34 Heys Avenue for years afterwards. The youngest son, another Robert, lived on Cherry Tree Close. Sister Ada, married Harry Greenhalgh. Mary, the sister who hung herself, remains a mystery until I can find the coroner's report or similar. She was never, ever mentioned by any of the family (only my mother referred to it occasionally) but I am quite sure her death had a devastating effect upon all of them. She was found in a barn - not the cellar. Frances Tivey (March 2013)
