The Ship Inn, Thursby


The Ship Inn is located by The Green in Thursby. The inn probably dates from the late 18th century and has former stable buildings; it was situated on the old Cockermouth & Carlisle turnpike road, and near the junction of the road to Wigton. Sir Thomas Bouch, the Victorian engineer responsible for the ill fated Tay Bridge, was born here in 1822. The Ship Inn was taken over by the State Management Scheme, some time after 1915, until it was sold to Scottish & Newcastle breweries on the 17th of April 1973.[1] The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
