Withnell/Brinscall - Hoghton Arms

Name: The Hoghton Arms Inn

Address: Billy Lane, Withnell, Chorley


Hoghton Arms c.1960's

The Hoghton Arms dates back to the 1840's and was located on Billy Street although today the postal address is Blackburn Rd, Withnell, Chorley. First reference to the pub is on the 1841 Census when an Edward Blackledge, a "Schoolmaster" was shown living at the Hoghton Side Bar.  Whether or not he sold beer as a side line is not known but by the time of the 1849 map below the Hoghton Arms was very much an established concern in the Blackledge family along with farming.
