Water Supply

The following is an extract from a parish magazine of August 1896. 'Wednesday, 23rd July 1896 is a day to be remembered as the date of the opening of the ground at Carr House Bridge, the boundary between Hoole and Bretherton, for the commencement of our system for a public water supply. Since that date the pipes have been laid across the parish of Bretherton and they are now rapidly proceeding through the parish of Tarleton in the direction of Hesketh.'

Before this villagers were dependant on wells for water; one was in Coe Lane between the Rectory and the old church.
