The story so far
Our Thatched Canalside Tavern, originally School House Farm, built in 1798 two years before the Lancaster Canal was completed, sits right next to it. The farm was renowned for Porter first brewed in 1832. Reverend Thomas Duell, vicar at St Lawrence’s Church, Barton resided here while his vicarage was rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1832... School House Farm was bought from Mr & Mrs Fife in 1986 by the Wilkinson family.
