daithi Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 13 Jan 03

The oldest pub in Bury (where I spent some time at school more years ago than I care to admit to) was called The Two Tubs - a name I've never come across elsewhere - is it still there, Bury-ites?
Just a few miles away in rochdale, on Ashworth moor, is a pub known locally as Owd Bett's. Its original name was something more prosaic ( but Elizabeth Ashworth was a formidable landady in the nineteenth century and the pub eventually took her name. A few years ago I believe the brewery/owners/magistrates/whoever officially changed its name to Owd Betts.
