The Mosley Arms stood on New Shambles, now the lower part of Southgate. In the mid 1880s this area was home to Deansgate Shambles, a large undercover market area complete with the fruit & veg Deansgate Arcade Market. Just off Lower King Street (now King Street West), the Mosley Arms was one door down New Shambles, opposite the market's Weights and Measures Office, which stood where San Carlo (Maxwells) is today .
