We have recently moved to the village and we would like to find out more about the house we live in. 

The address is on Stubbins Lane and we have been told that our semi used to be a pub called the White Horse or White Lion.  Some of the stonework looks approximately 200 years old.  It would be nice to find out more or even see any photographs.


Stubbins Lane

Some of the houses in the Lane date back to 1842, it is possible that some of these cottages had machines (? hand looms weaver’s) in the back bedroom although steam powered loom had been installed in Ramsbottom Mill at the end of Crow Lane by 1833 (possibly 1826)
