  1. I used to own that house from about 1992-1994. There is a massive set of beautiful old deeds which came with the house, in the name of a number of the early landlords you mention above - it was a great house, the first and last I ever owned in Chorley

  2. Thanks for the comment James. Do you know when it was converted from a pub to a dwelling? From first appearances you wouldn't know it had been a pub...I guess the inside was completely reworked too.

  4. It is still up and running and being added to when time allows. You'll see another blogger James is also a previous owner of the Prince Consort, post-beerhouse days. I don't have anything additional to what's on this page at the moment but please help yourself to copies of any of the images and update me if you find anything new please. Richard.

  5. If I am not mistaken, this pub had its own brewery, accessed through the arch on garden terrace.

  6. I was unaware of that Mark so will have look next time I'm passing. It was owned and run by a brewery in 1906 at the time of the press cutting regarding Jas Scotson's claim but prior to that I don't have any further information at this point so thanks for the post.
