Temperance Hotel

Name: The Temperance Hotel

Address: 28, Chapel Street, Chorley

The Temperance Movement began in the early 1800's and I have found one example of its existence in Chorley.  In 1881, No.28 Chapel Street was the home of Mary Ann Cramps, which she ran as a Temperance Hotel.  Sadly (for Mary) it doesn't appear to have been terribly popular in the town and by 1891 she was no longer listed at the address; a Harry Chester Wilcocks, teacher of music and local preacher was now in residence. Greenhalgh's bakery now occupies 28, Chapel Street.

However, a local press article below confirms that there was an Albany Temperance Hotel in Chapel Street in 1900, although exactly where this was located is not known at this point.
