Address: 55, Lee Lane, Horwich
The Saddle Inn on the corner of Lee Lane and Brownlow Road has been open since the 1850s and remains so to this day. It changed its name to the Pheasant Plucker for a few years but around 2012 the pub reverted back to its original name.
A building can be seen on the 1845 map below at the road junction but this appears to be far smaller in size to the Saddle Inn and as there is no record of the pub on the 1851 census or trade directories at that time I assume this was demolished to make way for the Saddle Inn.
