All being well I'll be popping in for one today, It will be at the end of a 18 to 20 mile walk so I'll be the knackered looking one. I'm trying to get fit again and I've walked about 100 miles this week.

I will post photo's later.

The Tim Bobbin's is more like a village pub then a town bar.  Beer very good it was a toss up to have another pint or dash off to the Red Lion in Colne.  Buses from outside the pub drops you off 50 yards away from the Red Lion.

Been in here the other day and the beer was good and the manager friendly enough. I was disappointed by the state of repair of the interior. I do believe it is on the list of pubs that were meant to be getting a refurbishment sometime.Anyone know any more information?

Looks like the brewery is applying and been granted planning permision to renovate this pub. It did look a little scruffy on my last visit.

The Tim Bobbin was my Grandad's local - he was Thomas Charles Crossley born at 182/184 Gannow Lane in 1880 (died 1965)

His father Reuben was a carter/coal merchant who had a yard/shed on the Canal by Gannow Bridge, Grandad took on that line of work and later had a 'greengrocers' at 16? Woodbine Terrace; when he retired he moved to 5 Kime Street where he lived with his daughter (Mrs Edith McDermott) till he died

I had the privilege of sharing a pint with him a couple of times in 1964/65 (still not 18!!!)

Apparently his brother in law Frank Smith was at one time a barman in the Tim Bobbin just before WWi

Frank and his wife Nancy (nee Walton my Grandmother's sister) emigrated to Canada about 1910 where he was a porter for CP Railways in Winnipeg - Nancy died in 1912 and Frank remarried

When WWI started Frank joined the Canadian Army and shipped back to England and then to France where he was killed in March 1918

see

http://burnleyinthegreatwar.info/memorials/timbobbinindex.htm

http://burnleyinthegreatwar.info/burnleyrollofhonourmens/smithfrank187705.htm

I've only been in the Pub a couple of Times since Grandad died ( my Dad moved from Burnley after WWII and we lived overseas for a while - and I now live in North Yorkshire) and only learnt about Frank since the turn of the century

The last time I was in I asked about the Memorial but no one knew anything about it

with the upcoming 'Centennial' for WWi it would be nice if someone (the Brewery) could resurrect the memorial to Frank and the others

Anyone got any suggestions on how to make this happen

Visited here in the SSmobile this week. In fact had a very pleasant night wild parked in the wide back road by the municipal park down the road behind the pub.

It was quiet when I found it open at midday. I was impressed by its internal layout. Lots of alcoves and side-spaces. The early doors locals were friendly enough, and they were training up new bar staff, so no problem taking photos.

Large car park behind the pub away from the main road.

Dog friendly.

How many SS pubs have a bus stop named after them?

Wow!  Since when did they have a spokesman?

"Rather than the large open spaces created in recent times, the building will be returned to four smaller rooms, with the central milling space occupied by the bar servery"

Samuel Smith spokesman

Makes a change from 'No-one at Samuel Smiths was available to comment'!
