The old mother redcap is situated at the Southern edge of Rishton's boundary (literally!) Across the road is Knuzden village, only 10 yards away!
The drawing on here shows the original farm building with the hexagonal windows on both of the extension buildings.
This was the only building in the area with these windows, and up to the building being refurbished during the 1990's by a brewery, were still visible. They have since been covered up with signs and I'm not sure if they have been filled in with bricks as well.
On the 21st January 1943 the Council amended the rateable value of the Old Mother Redcap from £52 to £59. It was then amended again from £59 to £66. 12 months later, on the 17th August 1944, the building was re-rated yet again. The Gross Value was £90 per annum, with a Rateable Value of £72. It was proposed by Rishton Urban District Council to change this to £98 Gross Value, with a Rateable Value of £78.
