Red Lion Inn

Picture source: Stewart Marsh

The Red Lion Inn was situated at the bottom of Hall Bank.  It was operated by the Harrison family for over seventy years. William Harrison was landlord from at least as early as 1871, followed by his unmarried daughter Emma and then his granddaughter Elizabeth, who was also unmarried and landlady until at least 1941. Going back a bit further, William's father-in-law, George Roose, was the innkeeper in the 1840s.
The pub closed in 1951 and is now a pair of (holiday?) cottages. There is still a large lion outside Red Lion Cottage with some traces of red colouration remaining on it.
