About the Pub

Standing opposite the church in a very pretty location, this Grade II listed pub, with '1634 GCP' carved over the door, was originally known as Newhouse. It became the White Swan pub in around 1745, but was renamed following the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Once a haunt of Branwell Bronte and the home of a lending library in 1776, the 'mayor' of Luddenden is still elected here. It has original beamed ceilings and mullion windows and, although a rambling building, has three comfortable rooms: a cosy lounge with an upright piano in an old fireplace, a back lounge with pictures and plates, and a family room. Outside at the rear is a small paved area with tables, leading to a large raised garden seating area.
