Pubs across Lancashire celebrated Lancashire Day by offering customers a specially brewed beer.
All of the pubs served Flying Shuttle, brewed specially for them by Blackburn-based Thwaites Brewery.
One pub, The Paramount, in Manchester, received a personal delivery from the Thwaites shire horses.

Natalie said: “We are proud to support Lancashire Day, and our customers enjoyed the opportunity to mark the occasion with a great beer, as well as Lancashire Hot Pot.
“It was wonderful that the Thwaites shire horses delivered our beer personally – and we’re looking forward to celebrating the big day once again in 2012.”
