Lad Lane was a road off Deansgate, just three premises south of Peter Street, and on the north corner was the Swan Inn . This puts former location where the old and, preserved London & North East Railway Goods Depot archway is today, indicating its fate. In the mid-1880s the Swan was kept by Robert Rowland and stood directly opposite the Grapes which lasted at least a century longer .
