1996

Previously called the BELL.

Said to have been renamed after John Buck, an innkeeper mentioned in Parson Woodforde's diaries. However no licensee of that name yet identified at this house.

It is reputed that John Buck was a ``Notorious smuggler''.

Peter Mellor advises that the rent in 1966 was £50.00 per annum.
Following extensive renovations by the brewery in 1968
it rose to £200.00 per annum.

Later Rents....

1975         £1116
1981         £2004
