9. Man & Scythe - 1251

9. Man & Scythe - 1251

Man & Scythe - 1251

A pub that’s been rebuilt fairly recently in 1636, the first appearance of a pub on the site appears to be 1251, at the same time as the charter setting up the market in a nearby area - though the cellar is much older. Decorated by an axe used in the 1651 execution of the Earl of Derby.

(The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
