Lovely area Aspull and nice pub, close to Haigh Hall Country Park too, what more do you what.
Cheers Dennis.

I only ever went in once when I was about 20! However, whenever we pass it in the car I always think it looks a nice pub and am glad it is still up and running. I always enjoy going through Aspull and Haigh. You're making me think of warm days, with a glass of lager and a bag of crisps in a beer garden, with all these photos of pubs, Dennis!

I suppose the name indicates the pub was built on the edge of the Moor. It’s lasted longer that the Running Horses or the Hare andHounds. It’s quite a grand building really. Looks smart anyway but I have never been inside.

It looks a bit odd to me with it having two different styles of roofs.

The Moorgate was and probably still is a great pub with great clientele,we used to frequent the Moorgate when Trevor and Anne ran it probably in the late eighties they were excellent and I spent a lot of time talking to Trevors dad who lived in Blackrod decent man.

Tom, both the roofs are the same, but the one on the left has a parapet wall front and side.
