Welcome to The Stork Hotel



A Brief History of The Stork Hotel
The Stork Hotel, early 1900s
Once used as a Cromwellian gaol, the Stork Hotel is steeped in History.
From its humble beginnings as a farm house in 1718 the building has had many uses ever since.  Sited on the main road from Liverpool to Lancaster it was once used as a Toll Tower for travellers on the road.  Since then the Stork has been used as an Inn, Hotel and as formentioned, a Gaol used by Cromwell's troops during the English Civil War.
Cromwell himself is believed to have stayed here on numerous occasions.  
The original building dates back to the year 1718 and was extended in 1752 to pretty much what you see today. 
The building now is currently used as a local village pub and hotel consisting of 8 bedrooms, 
6 of which have full en-suite facilities that were re-furbished in the latter months of 2010.
