Jolly Carter, Royle Green Road

Halfway along Royle Green Road a couple of new build houses betray the former location of two Jolly Carter pubs.  The first was an old Boddington's house, seen in 1907 and 1970 just before closure (the row of houses seen on the left in both these photos still stands today).  Quite why the powers that be decided to knock down this fine boozer for the new Jolly Carter estate pub, pictured here by Alan Winfield in 1994, is anyone's guess.  The Jolly Carter was sadly pulled down in 2004 and was quickly replaced by Cedarwood Close a year later.
