Advertising feature for four Bass Charrington Public Houses within a few miles of each other, offering patrons new surroundings, disco dancing and good food and drink: the Talbot, Burnley, Station Hotel, Nelson, Lane Ends, Lowerhouse and Park View Burnley.

Back in Burnley, the pub in the middle of the road, the Lane Ends, Lowerhouse, has had an interior make-over. Tastefully decorated in a Victorian style which emphasises the original wood panelling in the new lounge area, there is a tap room/games room with a pool table. The manager, Arthur Clift, came to the pub 14 months ago from the Morris Dancers, Colne. Arthur and his wife Nita are keen to develop the Lane Ends into a catering rendez-vous for lunch and evenings, and there is an intimate dining area. Nita said “This is not a place where the wife caters and the husband stays behind the bar. We both cook.”
