The history

Historic documents show that the Original Withy Trees is on the 1834 Directory when Richard Fairclough was the landlord.

Prior to being a public house it was Withy Trees Farm and the original building dates back to several hundred years.

The whole area of Bamber Bridge was known as Withy Trees, with various properties lying within taking the name including Withy Trees Cotton Mill and Withy Trees Cottages.

It is not to be confused with the newer pub – the Withy Arms – on the corner of Station Road and Brownedge Lane.

The pub has a beer garden and parking for up to 20 cars
