The Northern Union was opened in the early 70's as the Parr British Legion,replacing the imfamous ''blood tub''.Slightly lower down Ashcroft St from the original,it soon regained it's nick name.After being shut down by the police for a while,Bass refurbished it as a pub.In the late 80's it underwent major changes and was renamed the Glass Barrel after the nickname of the New Church Tavern.Finally ceasing trading as Branskis,it is currently a chinese retaurant.Link to Pub

A quirk of this pub, before it became the Brasserie, was the floor in the bar. On entering, the bar was about 5ft high, but as you walked up the sloping floor it was about 3ft 6inches. The floor ran down that much!Link to Pub

At the bottom of Mill Lane/Leech Lane, this pub is subject to flooding. Customers will agree on getting dizzy entering because due to the subsidence the floors are anything but even.Link to Pub
