Dargan Arms, Oldham Road

William Dargan. (c) wikipedia.

The Dargan Arms beerhouse stood next to the Dog & Partridge, and opened in 1836 a couple of years earlier than its neighbour, but by 1858 had become a baker's [1].  It was named after William Dargan, a pioneer of Irish railways - possibly due to the pub's close proximity to Oldham Road station.  The next pub up Oldham Road from the Dargan was the still-standing but closed Cheshire Cheese.
