  • location: Crosland Moor Bottom
  • status: likely no longer exists
  • category: public house, beerhouse, inn, etc.

Based on the location identified by Brian Clarke, the Wounded Huzzar may have been an earlier name for the Woodman Inn on Manchester Road. The beerhouse's name is presumably a reference to the folk balled of the same name.[1]


The History of Lockwood and North Crosland (1980) by Brian Clarke:

A cluster of houses bore this name in the early 1800’s but no positive proof regarding the inn of this name has been found. A Thomas Horsfall was an Innkeeper at Longroyd Bridge in 1748 which may be a connection with this house, but, if so, the house must have been rebuilt for a house at 311 Manchester Road bore a stone inscribed "The Wounded Huzzar, MDCCCXX" (1820).
