History on a Plate
You could say history is served up on a plate at the Black Lion - and it also comes with a pint!
That's because licensee Wendy Hoyle and her husband, David (better known as Spike) have combined all the usual amenities of a first-class pub with a "museum", featuring old photographs and memorabilia recalling a time when Luddendenfoot was a busy, bustling community with a character all its own.
The photo, from their collection, shows Burnley Road just before wholesale demolition of property took the heart out of the community in the 1960s.
