Adlington - Railway Inn

Name: The Railway Inn

Address: 84, Market Street, Adlington, Chorley

The Railway Inn was located on Market Street in Adlington at the junction with Harrison Road and was so named due to it's proximity to the original Lancashire Union Joint Railway Line, which ran North to South at the rear of the premises. This area was known as Water House Bridge which is where the River Douglas cuts across Adlington.

Listed landlords are recorded on census records from 1841 onwards and were John Mitchell (1841), John Anderton (1851), Paul Fairclough (1861-72), James Mason (1869), John Rigby (1872), Thomas Moss (1881-91) and William Moss (1901-11).
