  • Description

    "In 1916, the village of Rockcliffe had two pubs - the Ship Inn (see: ) and the Crown & Thistle (see: ) These were acquired by the State Management Scheme in October 1916 and promptly closed - with the Ship later sold as a private dwelling. Pub business was transferred to the local village hall, which was refurbished by the Scheme and opened on 24 August 1917 as the Mounsey Arms on a 7 year lease. Records then become vague, but it is certain the Mounsey Arms was not part of the State disposals in 1973, while a 1973 OS map shows the Crown & Thistle as reopened. In any event, the Mounsey Arms is now a private dwelling - appropriately named the Mounsey Arms Cottage." Photo by The Carlisle Kid, 2017.
