St Annes On Sea, The Crescent 1905

The Crescent, St Annes On Sea around 1905

The Crescent in St Annes On Sea is a railway bridge, lined on one side by buildings, most of which contain shops and on the other by the Crescent Gardens. The bridge was built around 1885, with the shops being added between 1887 and 1901. The gardens were opened in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee.

Today, The Crescent remains remarkably unchanged, although there are fewer trees in the gardens now.

St Annes Hotel 1915 & Today

The St Annes Hotel stood on St Annes Road West, across from the railway station. Opened in 1876, it was the first public building in St Annes on Sea, which itself was only founded a year earlier in 1875.
The hotel was demolished in 1985, when refurbishment costs became too high, and was replaced by shops and a pub.
The location of the St Annes Hotel today. As you can see, the hotel has long been demolished and in its place are shops and The Town House pub.
The hotel’s Grade II Listed bar still remains though, now named Burlingtons and located beneath the Town House pub.
