After work, the workers streamed into Frodsham village in hundreds, scaring the local inhabitants nightly as they filled the streets looking for suitable entertainment. The beer houses opened wide their doors.
A considerable number of people came into Frodsham from all parts of the kingdom.
The consumption of beer greatly soared that its effects could be seen years later in the large number of beerhouses, quite out of proportion to the size of the village. Among these were: Bridge Inn, Red Lion, Bear's Paw, Cheshire Cheese, Weaver Tavern, Ring O'Bells, Commercial Hotel, Bear's Paw, Albert Inn, Belle Monte, Volunteer Inn, Golden Lion, George, Railway Inn, Whale Bone and the Bull's head.
