Pub History

This Wetherspoon pub is named after the dialect poet Edwin Waugh, who died in 1890 and was described as the 'Burns of Lancashire'.

In 1847, he became assistant secretary to the Lancashire Public Schools Association and moved to Manchester, which he hated. However, his horizons were widened by new acquaintances full of political ideals and wide reading. He wrote articles, but it was the dialect poem 'Come Whoam to thy Childer an' Me', published in 1856, which first brought him a large audience and financial reward. From then on, he earned a living by writing poetry and reciting verses in public. When he died, he was mourned by thousands as the 'voice of Lancashire's homely virtues'.
