The Bootle Arms Pub. Please wait while the picture loads.

The Bootle Arms Pub.  This end of the pub is 17th century. Press on an area of the picture to enlarge it. Find the hinges under the window under the old gate arch. Can you see the bulge in the front wall. The two black squares are “ties”. Rods connect through the building to plates on the back wall. They stop the wall from bulging more. Otherwise, the pub would fall down.
