Clarendon Inn, Clarendon Street

Clarendon Inn, Clarendon Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. (c) Bob Potts [1].

Before the building of the Manchester Metropolitan University on Oxford Road, Clarendon Street used to run just south of and parallel to Chester Street [2]. On the corner with Oxford Road stood the Clarendon Inn, a grand looking pub, shown here in 1958.  Its precise location would have been just where the main entrance is to Manchester Metropolitan University is today, at No.1 Clarendon Street.  The Clarendon was run by John Spencer according to the 1848 Slater's Directory [2], and it closed in 1964 as a Wilsons house [3].
