The Crown Inn was located near the corner of the High Street and Heywood Road. It was possibly at 5 Heywood Road. The long serving landlady at the Crown Inn, Mabel Wilce, was also a dealer of antiques in the High Street. It would appear that the Crown Inn ceased trading before the outbreak of the Second World War. Tom Wilce was the last landlord.
