Royal Visit

In May 2006 the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh visited the Duchy of Whitewell Estate. They visited Dunsop Bridge and then watched a cow having her feet trimmed at Radholme Laund Farm. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh then had a birthday celebratory lunch for the Queens 80th birthday at The Inn. After lunch they visited Burholme Farm to have tea with all their tenants.

Bowman Family

Charles Bowman is the third generation of Bowman to become involved with the Inn’s evolution. His father Richard, the former Lancashire cricketer and brewer, was largely responsible for the restoration of the existing building. The family passion for antiques and pictures abound, so too does their quite often-misplaced humour.
