Church Inn, Jersey Street

Church Inn, Jersey Street, Ancoats, 1991. (c) deltrems at flickr.

On the corner of Jersey Street and Murray Street, the Church Inn was first recorded as a beerhouse in 1836 under William Turner [1].  This old Wilsons house is sadly long gone, and it seemingly closed between 1987 and 1991.  There's a couple of 1967 pictures here and here on the Manchester Archives and Local Studies Image Collection. The Church Inn is one of many lost pubs of old Ancoats... we'll try to cover them all.

  1. my nana was born on radium st in the 1920s. my great grand parents were born and raised on radium st. my family's roots are in ancoats. the church inn could have been my greatgrand fathers local. i will ask my nana.

  2. Your great grandfather may also have drank in the Cross Keys on the corner of Radium Street and Jersey St -

    The Nelson was open on the corner of Oldham Road and Radium St until 1985 -

    The Mechanics Arms stood on Radium St until about the time your Nana was born...
