The Stanley Arms, Roby
The Stanley Arms, Roby
On the roadside sign of this public house is a golden eagle on a cradle. The famous "Eagle and Child" from the Lathom coat of arms was adopted by the Stanley family after the marriage in 1385 of Isabella de Lathom to Thomas Stanley. The Lathom lands in Huyton, Roby and Knowsley then passed on to the Stanley family (later Earls of Derby). Huyton-with-Roby civic crest also displays the Eagle and Child.
In 1866, the Stanley Arms was the venue for an athletics day held for staff of the London & North Western Railway Company who lived and worked in the Liverpool area.
