Leyland - Seven Stars Hotel

Name: The Seven Stars Hotel

Address: 93, Leyland Lane, Leyland


The Seven Stars Hotel dates back to the early 1830s and pre-dates its namesake on Towngate by several decades. To add further confusion, the Old Original Seven Stars beerhouse was located only a stone's throw from here.

It is little wonder that she chose to leave the Seven Stars shortly afterwards to make a new home for herself and her children in the Crofter's Arms.
