Picture source: Geoff Wilkinson

The Brown Cow was situated on the junction of Church Street and Park Hill Road. The roundabout you see there is approximately where the oldest known pub in Garstang used to be. The date 1685 was on the stone lintel above the door of this pub, and it was reputedly built from the plundered stone from Greenhalgh Castle. After closing itís doors in 1903, it became a grocers and bakers shop. Unfortunately it was destroyed by fire in 1931 and was subsequently demolished.
