Address: Sandy Lane, Brindle
Although the Lord Nelson has been a part of Brindle village life since the early 1668 as its date stone confirms it now lies within the boundaries of Whittle-le-Woods. I have included it as a Brindle pub on this blog as it was originally within the village boundaries and has been linked to Brindle far longer than it has to Whittle.
The earliest listed landlord was on the 1825 directory below, a Robert Hubbersty and subsequent census records confirm that he was also a farmer and remained at the pub until his death in 1878. Subsequent landlords were James Baxendale (1881-91), Joseph Kellett (1901-11), James Ormisher (1921) and Richard Rigby (1934).
