Globe, George Street

Site of the Globe, George Street / Medlock Street. (c) googlemaps.

The site of the Globe Hotel is now beneath the Mancunian Way's Princess Parkway roundabout and a Premier Travel Inn - confirmed by the 1844 map of Hulme [1]. Before the inner ring road was built, this area was the intersection of Medlock Street and George Street (now Hulme Street - you can see where Hulme Street continues on; this was George Street and it turned into Bedford Street). The Globe Hotel or Globe Inn is described as being on George Street [2] and at 64 Medlock Street and was a Walkers & Homfrays house in 1951 as pictured below, having been licensed since the 1830s. In 1848 the licensee was Solomon Warhurst at 48 George Street according to the Slater's Directory [1].
