Fishermens Hut, Chapel Street

Fishermens Hut, Chapel Street, Salford, 1870s. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

Across Hatton Court from the larger Old Ship / Ship Hotel on Chapel Street was the Fishermens Hut beerhouse, on the right in the above photo from the 1870s.  It was an old timber framed building with lath and plaster walls divided into five premises of which one was the beerhouse.  Originally a butchers, the first licensees of the Fishermens Hut were Mary then Elizabeth Copley until 1863.  Thomas Wood had it until the 1880s and the last licensee was Thomas Baxter who kept the beerhouse until it was pulled down with its adjoining shops in 1894 [1].

  1. The Fishermans Hut was also the club house of the Salford Friendly Anglers Society - which is the worlds oldest angling club formed in 1817.
    The Salford Friendly Anglers still meet today at the Kings Arms on Bloom St.


  2. Great stuff Mike I'll add this detail to both entries. Cheers
