Ken Worthington of Wigan CAMRA has sent me the following interesting piece of information:
The owners of the Wayfarer Pub and Restaurant in Alder Lane, Parbold, have applied for planning permission to convert a nearby cottage in Alder Lane into a microbrewery. They hope to produce 20 barrels a week, five for the pub and the other fifteen for sale locally. As things stand, no final decision has been made on the application yet.
Pleasing news if it comes off, especially after the launch of the new brewery in Burscough.
