Moulders Arms, Great Ancoats Street

Moulders Arms, Great Ancoats Street. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

The Moulders Arms closed as a Walkers of Warrington house in 1933, but before that had been known as the Spinners Arms (1811-21), Hop Pole (1823-32), Lord Brougham (1834-39; Brougham was a famous MP and reformer of the period) and the Foresters Arms [1].  It was first recorded as the Moulders Arms in 1848 in an advert which described "a new, handsomely fitted-up wine and spirit vault".  It stood on the corner with Allum Street, one of many which were cleared years ago where the Ancoats Retail Park now stands, just this side of the Rochdale Canal bridge.
