Coach & Horses, Rochdale Road

Coach & Horses, Rochdale Road. (c) googlemaps.

A few yards up Rochdale Road from the Marble Arch and the old Mamas / Victoria Inn is this engineering business on the corner of the main road and Hinton Street.  In the mid-1800s this street was John Street and on this corner stood the Coach & Horses.  Looking back down Rochdale Road to town you can see, from left to right, the flat iron building that faced the Saracen's Head, Mamas / Victoria, and the strange archways that have been retained that sit alongside the fine Marble Arch beer garden.
