Line Drawing and 1970

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.

Inside the Old Mother Redcap

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.

Advert and red cap shot

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.
