Looking down Oldham Road towards town, on the left, just before Poland Street, is this empty plot on which used to stand the Spread Eagle in the 1800s . The pub was four properties up from Poland Street, but back then a house was one bay wide, so the pub would have been roughly right up against the where the Nicolas and Partners Solicitors office is today. Down Oldham Street you can see the Victoria Square flats and the Wing Yip Chinese either side.
