New Inn

Barley, Lancashire

In an ancient village with the millstream running past, the Old Mill has a beautiful setting. Successive proprietors have persevered the old mill pool with its 18 feet diameter iron mill wheel from the days when it was operational. Mills were essential to local communities as each farmer brought his grain to be ground without having the huge expense of his own milling facilities. From time to time, the ghost of a woman in a grey dress appears in the restaurant of the Old Mill Hotel. She seems to be trying to communicate in what sounds like an old-fashioned voice. However, although she is speaking English, it is without clarity.
