WHITE HORSE, Waterside

WHITE HORSE
Waterside
*
MINE HOST:
1686                 William Wearden
1818                 James Harrison
*
In the Court Leet Records of January 21st 1686, there is
mentioned "That he scour the ditch belonging to the White Horse neare to the Water Side, and amend the footway
betwixt (now) and the 24th March 1686"
-
This would mean near to the Ribble, and it may be 
presumed that it was the building, which was known as the 
"Regatta Inn," and which in the past stood at the bottom
of Fishergate Hill, or that it was near to the site of that place.
