This odd collection of buildings is unmistakably an old boozer as you travel down Ashton Old Road into town, as the PACK HORSE sign remains. Until recently it was a Holt's boozer and before that, Greenall Whitley's.

These 1960s and 1970s photos show the Pack Horse as a Groves & Whitnall house on the corner of Louisa Street. These days the old Pack House is in use as a variety of tumbledown foreign shops and businesses.
