Roebuck, Ashton Street

On what was believed to be the shortest street in Manchester, the Roebuck was originally attached to a dozen houses on Ashton Street, but these were pulled down when the railway company built a goods shed over the site for the Liverpool Road Station [1]. The Roebuck, though, was saved and remained standing on its own for many years, a small pub, I think just off the bottom end of Lower Byrom Street.
