George Inn, Medlock Street

Former site of George Inn, Medlock Street. (c) googlemaps.

Back up River Street from the old British Standard and where it meets Medlock Street was the George Inn, today a Premier Travel Inn. The 1844 map has the 1848 Slater's Directory on its rear which lists William Bromley as proprietor of the George Inn at 44 Medlock Street [1]. Note the unfinished building in the right-distance - an eyesore which has stood skeletal for years now, a canvas for Manchester's grafitti artists and a reminder of the effect of the recession on Manchester's modern re-building programme.
