Wheelton - Oak Tree Inn

Name: The Oak Tree Inn

Address: 14, Victoria Street (previously Lower Lane), Chorley, Lancashire



The Oak Tree Inn was a small beer house on Victoria Street in Wheelton although nowadays it is a private dwelling.  First reference to the beer house appeared in the 1841 census and it was still open into the 1920's although press cuttings below would suggest it was becoming more difficult to make ends meet post WW1 with the license expiring twice within a few years due to redundancy.

Listed landlords at the Oak Tree were Robert & Alice Charock (1841-51), William Slater (1861), Alice Slater (1871), John Rutter (1881), Robert Hardman (1891), Albert Cross (1901) and James Hargreaves (1911).
