The Oddfellows Arms at Lee Mill, was a ante beerhouse owned by Baxters Brewery, closed in 1912. The Royal Oak was another like many local pubs and beer houses owned by Baxters, with a licence showing from 1861. The Cemetery Hotel opend in 1865, its landlord being James Ashworth, closing on 5th Januey 1957. The Farholme Tavern was showing a licence in 1864 and is still serving today. The Commercial Hotel once a important place which was the location for carrying out local inquests first held its licence in 1861. One of the Commercials Landlords went by the name of “boots” his real name was in fact William Carey. During the Zulu war of 1879 it was reported in the Bacup Times that this well liked popular man had joined the brave ranks of the 24th Foot Regiment and had fallen for his country at Rorkes Drift, Isandhlwana. For over six months the locals believed William had found a soldier’s grave. Then another report appeared in August edition stating that far from being killed he was actually alive and well and living in the Irish barracks in Mullingar. Number 318 Newchurch Road was of course the Railway Tavern another public house owned originally by Baxters brewery. One of the longest serving landlords was James Flanagan who took over the pub in 1929 and left in 1960. Thirteen years later the pub was closed and rumors circulated that it would not reopen. But reopen it did in August 1973 after being closed for ten months with a new look and a new landlord"
