Queens Arms, North Kent Street

Queens Arms, North Kent Street, Collyhurst. (c) Bob Potts [1].

North Kent Street used to run off Collyhurst Street, parallel to North Kent Street in Collyhurst, but it was lost to 1960s redevelopments to be replaced by Thornton Street North.  It contained three boozers; the Crown, the Friendship and the Queens Arms, which opened in 1862.  The Queens at No.3 North Kent Street was owned by the Walkers Brewery of Warrington and it was a classic corner pub with three entrances on two streets - probably the vault, parlour and the public bar.  The Queens Arms closed in 1928, a year before its near neighbour, the Crown [1].
