    The History
    John Lowe, formerly of Burnley Council’s planning office, published a very informative series of drawings of the Bull for his book “Burnley” (p. 74-7) published in 1985. He shows the building as you see it here but, on his drawings, he has tidied up its lines considerably. John gives the Bull a stone slate roof but Walter Bennett, Burnley’s local historian, says the building was “a low thatched, whitewashed farmstead with the inn and house at one end of the building and shippon, and hay loft entered through large barn doors at the other end”.

    Notice the windows. On the two floors, plus the basement, the larger windows are drawn rather crudely but John gives them attractive mullions, a feature which would date the building to the later 17th Century. The two smaller first floor windows are shown in John’s drawing as being without mullions but leaded. The one to the right is shown as having wooden shutters which were common in Burnley in the 18th and 19th Centuries. There is a central door to the inn, with the pub name over it, and there is another door, possibly access to the residential parts of the property, to the left.

    Anyone for a pint? (My personal favourite from this explore)

    I think they forgot to take the glasses out the wash! (I work at a pub so seeing this on a day off made me shiver :c )
