Wiswell
A small village on the edge of Whalley and home to another popular inn, Wiswell is said to have taken its name from Old Molly's Well, later known as the wise woman's well. The first record of Wiswell is in a charter of 1193, in the reign of Richard the First. The village's most famous resident was the last Abbot of Whalley, John Paslew, who came to a sticky end in 1537 for providing help to participants in the Pilgrimage of Grace, a northern protest against the policies of Henry VIII.
