Pub

Situated on the junction of High Street and Walmsley Street, the pub must have done a roaring trade at one time with the Rishton colliery at the top of the street, all those dry throats full of coal dust…

On the 21st January 1943, the Council amended the rateable value of the Walmsley Arms from 75 to 92. This was further amended in the same council meeting from 92 to 122.

12 months later, on the 17th August 1944, the building was re-rated yet again. The Gross Value was 182 per annum, with a Rateable Value of 148. It was proposed by Rishton Urban District Council to change this to 197 Gross Value, with a Rateable Value of 161.

Still under construction…..
