Just a post to say it looks as though the Strawberry Gardens Pub could be lost. It has closed and all the interior fittings removed Ie the bars. it is currently boarded up and will not reopen as a pub. Shame but just a few quick questions what is the status of the building is it listed ? And about 2 years ago I went to show an american friend the height mark of the 1927 flood which was chiseled (engraved ?) on the sandstone right hand pillar of the front door but was dissapointed to find it had erroded ! I spoke to the then manager who said it was to be ressurected and renewed but this obviously has not happened. So does any one have a photo of said mark would be interested to see it again Thanks in anticipation :)

Steve,
Where exactly is this pub, not being local to your area.
Check your PMs.

Frank.

Frank,

It's on Poulton Road in Fleetwood...although probably not for much longer.

Sad that it has been boarded up. I doubt if it could be listed. At least the pub can still be seen in good shape on Street View.

I have looked in most of the illustrated books on Fleetwood, but couldn't see a photo of the recorded high water level of 1927, although I thought I had seen one somewhere.

UPDATE said pub was put up for sale and according to my sources has been purchased by a certain "Mr James Parr" who is collaberating with Fuzzy Duck Brewery of Poulton le Fylde to offer a "Real Ale" pub. Its only 200yds from me so in the interests of academic research I will endevour to check out said establishment once it opens. New HQ Wyre Archeolgy ? lol :D

Forgot to report that three mates and I called in the Strawberry Gardens three weeks ago. Excellent cask-conditioned beers, but our arrival more than doubled the number of customers. That's not many on Easter Monday afternoon, although the bar at Highbury was packed with Fleetwood Town fans waiting for the kick-off of a crucial game (against Barrow), so maybe that accounts for the lack of customers in the Strawberry. I hope trade does flourish, because the north end of the Fylde is in need of a good real ale pub.
