Address: 73, Weldbank Lane, Chorley

The Mitre stands on Weldbank Lane, a stone's throw from St. Gregory's R.C. Church, which helps explain its name. First appearing on local records in 1861 the listed landlords of the Mitre were Robert Walmsley (1861-72), Margaret Walmsley (1874-79), Thomas Baxendale (1879), Robert Heaps (1881-), Catherine Worthington (1889-1901), Robert Crook (1911-18) and Ralph Rainford (1936).
