Sugar Loaf, Sugar Lane

The Sugar Loaf, an unusually named Wilsons house seen in 1959, 1965, 1965 again and in the 1970s, was on Sugar Lane, a similarly oddly named little street that was off Withy Grove before the Arndale blitzed this part of town.  This from 1959 shows where Sugar Lane led off Withy Grove (past the Lower Ship and next left, as seen here, just after the Sorrento cafe).  The Master's Music shop stood on Sugar Lane as seen in 1972.  Other lost pubs of Sugar Lane included the Weavers Arms (No.9) and the White Hart (No.16) (1825 directory), the Black Dog (1861 directory) and the Commercial Inn at No.17 as this 1911 census form from Benjamin Barker, the licensee, confirms.
