|I would think that the mis-use of the name 'Moor Park Inn' was|
commonplace, particularly bearing in mind the close proximity
of Moor Park.

Preston Guardian 5th December 1863
In a case of obtaining food and drink by means of a
threat, Ellen Catterall, wife of Thomas Catterall of
the Moorbrook Inn, said that ten men came into the
inn and demanded meat, drink and money. She told
them to come back when the master was at home.
They said they had been to Mr. Ware's (the Church
Hotel), and he had given them three half-gallons and
She gave them a gallon of beer, and they went away.
She was afraid of them.

The above two advertisements on display in the Moorbrook in 2013 are indicative of the licensee's sense of humour.
A common sight in the locals of by-gone days, yet
they're still here at the Moorbrook Inn - a fine collection of their 'regular's' tankards.
