Directly opposite the Egerton Arms, the Chester Road Inn was on the corner of Chester Road and Arundel Street. It only closed in 1971 as a Groves & Whitnall house  and as the snap below shows, the pub would have had fine views of St. George's Church when it was still a house of worship. The Chester Road Inn was on the left, now replaced by the bushes behind that driver's cab!
