On the corner of Wright Street and Ashton Old Road, boasting an Oliver Cromwell sign, the Cromwell Inn is shown here in the 1970s. The Drovers, which still stands today although no longer serving, was across the road and a bit further towards town is the still-serving Queen Anne (ex-Lord Wolsey).

The location of the Cromwell Inn can be seen on the 1891 map, between Wright Street and Cromwell Street on the south side of Ashton Old Road. Today this spot is nothing but a strangely-gated car park.
