Source: Thread from Stopford LadThe Club was known locally as The Edge, although it had many name changes along the way including; The Lizard, Purple Doors and most recently, Yesterdays.
It became popular with many local sportsmen and celebrities, most notibly ex Manchester United defender, and drinking legend, Paul Mcgrath.
In it's heyday they hosted gala evenings, and also became the areas only lap-dancing club.
The grandiose past of the club is still in evidence, from the baby grand piano in the basement bar, to the cherrub fountain in the courtyard, which was home to several expensive Koi Karp. To the rear of the club is a large two floor annexe which overlooks it's own large pond, with gardens that slope into a now overgrown small lake.
Planning permission was declined in September 2011 for a 68 room hotel with bistro and spa, but the club now sits in good company, overlooking the recently abandoned County Hotel pub.
Visited with some friends along with a scout of the Country Hotel opposite. Their isn't much to say that hasn't been covered by the introduction other than the place is absolutely trashed and a lot of the flooring on the 1st floor is VERY questionable - some rooms were inaccessible.
