The earliest record of The Higher Buck I could find was
when the pub was called 'The Buck i'th Vine'.In 1807 Stephen Whalley became
the owner of the pub along with it's own brewhouse, stable,coach house and
warehouse.In 1857 Stephen Whalley died and pub was sold to a Felix Grimshaw
for £380.It was not untill 1891 that 'The Buck i'th Vine' became The
Higher Buck.Mary Hey was the 'licensed vitualler' and her two daughters worked
for her in the pub.
