Charabanc trip from the Lord Stanley, 1923. [urban75]
This has been a very tough pub to find information on, despite it living on until the late 1990s.
The building has now been replaced by a residential development called Lord Stanley House.
The pub opened in Victorian times, where George Ferris was the first recorded landlord, taking over the pumps in May 1869.
The Pub History website also lists a Joseph Harbour becoming landlord in 1878, pulling pints there until 1904..

Gill Jackman got in touch with some recollections of the pub:
Yes, the Lord Stanley has been demolished - a good few years ago now.

I'm afraid I don't have a photo though I will ask around and keep my eye out. There are flats where it stood on Hinton road at the end of the alley that linked (Daisy) my Grandmother's flat on Milkwood road, with (Joyce) my Aunties in Oakbank Grove.
The Lord Stanley was run, in the war, by Harry and Daisy Buck and the bar often staffed by Joyce Buck. Beryl Buck helped out as did Geoffrey Buck and Joe Buck.
They had a bomb come through the roof but continued as a pub until Harry's death in the early 50's, when someone else became landlord/lady.
A thread on the urban75 bulletin boards
from June 2004 provided a few more memories:

Have you got any memories of the Lord Stanley?
Playghirl: I Lived on Hinton Road when it closed. The owner who was pretty cool died. The drinks were cheap...he let us bring our own CDs over. We really missed that classic boozer.
Maggot: I used to go there despite living opposite the Cambria as it was a top pub with decent ales.
