Ivy Leaf / Willow Concert Inn, Chester Road

Former location of Ivy Leaf / Willow Concert Inn, Chester Road.

Another of Chester Road lost pubs, the Ivy Leaf closed down in 1966 having been a Cronshaws then Groves  & Whitnall house.  It was formerly the Willow Concert Inn as mentioned in The Manchester Guardian in 1872 [1].  The Ivy Leaf was on the corner of Chester Road and Bentinck Street, a street which does in fact still carry on to the right once behind the undergrowth shown in the above shot, looking down Chester Road towards Cornbrook.
