Can anyone enlighten me further on exactly what was on the site of the Tickled Trout hotel on the banks of the Ribble prior to it being built?

I remember as a child with my family stopping off there on our way to the annual Wakes holiday at Blackpool and seem to recall a cafe and maybe even an amusement arcade.

Help, please...

Hi,
I've just joined the forum and as I browsed through the topics I saw this. I know it's a very old thread but as no one has replied, I thought it was worth a reply.

Around 1964 the Tickled Trout was a bikers cafe. I lived in Darwen and regularly rode pillion on my mate's motorbike to the Tickled Trout cafe to "pose" with the other bikers.

I remember once, we managed 85mph down the hill from the Blackburn end.

It had a great Juke box - real UK version of "Grease".

I was devastated when it closed and was demolished to make way for the Hotel

Thanks so much for that - it was around the mid-sixties when we used to stop off there.
