Kings Arms, West Craven Street

Kings Arms, West Craven Street, Ordsall. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

This old Walker & Homfray then Wilsons house on the corner of West Craven Street closed in 1971 and was pulled down a year or two later as part of the Ordsall redevelopments of the early '70s.  The young lad with the ball is below a sign that really does say 'PLAY STREET - PROHIBITED ALL VEHICLES'.  How times have changed - although at the bottom of the still surviving stretch of West Craven Street, Ordsall Park still caters for those who want to play ball.
