The Packet is no longer a pub, but as of 1984 the building was still there in Plank Lane, Pennington, Leigh. It was a canal pub, and later known as the Letters.[1] It may no longer be there - it looks based on Google Streetview like extensive rebuilding has been going on in the area.

In 1861, the landlord was Peter Hulme.[2]

In 1871 and 1881, Joseph Naylor was landlord.[3][4]
