One of the many great things about googlemaps is that it sometimes throws up old street names that are all-but lost in the name of progress. One example is here where Egerton Street, now lost beneath the Mancunian Way, and Worsley Street, surrounded by offices, once met. Today this spot is marked by the spaceship style Urban Splash rental suite, but in before all this the Egerton Inn sat on the corner of Egerton Street and Worsley Street. The Hardy's house closed in 1967 .
