Spread Eagle, Hanging Ditch

Originally the Spread Eagle Inn in Hanging Ditch near its intersection with Corporation Street, it's seen as a large hotel in these two 1902 photos, but a year later was pulled down as seen in 1903! In this map shown at you can see that the Spread Eagle was just around the corner from the New Boars Head and the famous Seven Stars on Withy Grove. Note how the meeting point of Hanging Ditch and Withy Grove, where the gaudy main entrance to the Printworks is today, was once known as Hydes Cross.
