Does anyone out there know anything about the Cumberland Arms, 5, Midlewich Crewe? Dea.


TinaTheCheshirePussyCat Report 7 Mar 2005 18:26

Hi Dea I work in Crewe. I can find out tomorrow if it still exists. What else did you want to know, and do you mean Middlewich Street for the address? Tina


Cheryl Report 7 Mar 2005 18:34

Hi I Work in Crewe and The Cumberland Arms is now called Sleepers and is just over the Cumberland Bridge in Earle Street Crewe. Its behind the Vine Hotel in Crewe. Do you want me to go and take a picture for you? Regards Cheryl


Dea Report 7 Mar 2005 19:10

Yes Tina, 5, Middlewich Street, Crewe. In 1901 my husband's great grandmother was landlady Sarah Louisa Hickton but by 1912 it was in the name of her brother in law Stephen chesters Hickton. - I am trying to trace them both. Any information would be appreciated, Regards, Dea.

Hi Cheryl, Yes, If it is the correct one, I would love a photo - I am not sure about Earle Street, - my pub was at No. 5 Middlewich Street - perhaps you know if this is the one.? Regards, Dea


Cheryl Report 7 Mar 2005 19:37

Hi Dea I think Middlewich St is off Earle St. The Vine is in Earle St and behind it is Sleepers. Will check tomorrow Leave it with me be in touch Cheryl


Cheryl Report 8 Mar 2005 14:47

Hi Dea Its me again!!! Just to let you know that The Cumberland Arms is in Middlewich Street and today it looked as if it was still trading. It is where I said it was right beside the Cumberland Railway Bridge hence the name. Its still called The Cumberland Arms my mistake the one I thought it was that is now called Sleepers was The Combermere Arms. Do you want a picture let me know and I'll bring my Camera with me tommorrow. Regards Cheryl Regards Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, Yes please to the picture if it's not too much trouble. Also, If I could be cheeky - If you live locally - can you look up the 'phone number for me as the one I got from the internet was no longer in use and 'directory enquiries', or whatever they are called now have no trace. I would like to get in touch to see if the present licensee knows anything of the Pub's history. Thanks, De.


Cheryl Report 11 Mar 2005 18:24

Hi Dea Sorry I've not been in touch been a busy couple of days. I've tried everywhere to get a telephone number for you but its not listed the only thing I can think of is that the number is listed under the name of the Landlord. But tonight I've asked a chap at work to go and have a drink there and see if he can get the tel number. Have taken Photo for you now just got to work out how to down load it and email you it. In the mean time can you message me direct with your email address then I can forward the Photo. Be in touch soon Cheryl


Dea Report 11 Mar 2005 18:39

Thank you so much cheryl - have e-mailed my address to you. I hope your friend enjoys his pint. Look forward to receiving the photo when you have time. Regards, Dea. x


Cheryl Report 16 Mar 2005 10:02

Hi Dea the Cumberland arms is still a pub and it is in Middlewich street,it used to be my local many years ago and I worked there for a short time.I have put a link to a site which has a photo of the pub ,as you look at the pub to the left used to be a house which became part of the pub about 35 years ago ( very rough guess) this helpsFay
