    The White Lion pub has been forever etched into the heritage of Swinton, thanks to a plaque that tells of the pub’s part in the history of the local Swinton Rugby Club. The team, which are one of the oldest rugby clubs in the country, used the White Lion as their headquarters 150 years ago and continued to do so for many years. The team were even nicknamed ‘The Lions’ due to their devotion to the pub.

    The plaque is one of several that has been installed around the area as part of Swinton’s new heritage trail.

    The White Lion is a pub for everyone and perfectly reflects the local community it represents.
