Old Hare & Hounds, Albert Street

Former location of Old Hare & Hounds, Albert Street. (c) googlemaps.

On the way out of Manchester city centre down Bridge Street towards Salford Central Station, just before you get to the Albert Bridge over the River Irwell, on the right is an NCP car park.  A couple of hundred years ago Albert Street went down here, running parallel to the river, to join up with St Mary's Parsonage [1].    On the left down Albert Street and adjacent to the Albert Mill which was on the corner of Bridge Street, was the Old Hare & Hounds pub, backing right onto the river.
