Sailor's Return


On The Quay.

There are scant details of this pub, it is known to be on The Quay and is listed as one of the hostelries damaged in the 1884 earthquake. My earlier location of the property on the corner of Bethany Street has been questioned and it is believed to have been at the lower end of the buildings forming Harding's Yard, latterly Colne Marine.
