Jolly Sailor / Travellers Call

Photograph sent to the forum by David Easton with the following description

Here is a photograph of the canal bridge in Furness Vale. It shows the former beerhouse, The Jolly Sailor / Travellers Call which closed in 1908 under the licensing Act of 1904. Strangely both seem to have been official names and in use concurrently. The extension to the rear was rebuilt at some time as it is now much shorter and is only single storey.
In the foreground is the parapet of the short aqueduct that carries the canal over Furness Brook. Look down from the towpath and you will see a section of roadway alongside the stream. This was the original road leading to New Mills. Prior to building of the railway,it was an extension of Old Road and joined the present day alignment of Station Road, near to Calico Lane.
The Station Road bridge was rebuilt in 1924/1925 so the photograph showing the earlier stone bridge, pre-dates that.
