SITUATED on Salford close to the corner of Railway Road, Ye Olde White Bull was at the gateway into Blackburn town centre for many years.

These photographs were taken in 1960 after the original pub had been demolished and a totally new building replaced it.

Standing in the shadow of Dutton’s Brewery - you can see the corner of the brewery building looming over the pub in the photo above, it was known to many as the Little Bull as there was a larger White Bull virtually across the road.

A refurbishment in 1979 saw it become the Brewers Arms and in 1998 became Pitchers Bar until it closed down and becoming home to Frankie’s Burger restaurant.
