The Owd Betts Story

Owd Betts was built in 1796 by Richard and Mary Ashworth. The building was passed to their son John and his wife Betty in the mid 1800's. During this time it became an inn and was called 'The Hare and Hounds'.

After John passed away in 1869 Betty continued to run the inn alone. It was during this time it became known as 'Owd Betts' In 1893.

Betty passed away at the age of 93. It was not until the 1950's that the pubs name was officially changed to 'Owd Betts' as a fitting testimony to the grand old lady. It is believed that Betty may still keep an eye on her pub today as many staff members have reported strange happenings and regularly hearing footsteps!
