Gamecock, Boundary Lane

A distinctive and oddly-shaped 1970s estate pub that has been shut for a number of years now, the Gamecock stands in the shadow of some of Hulme's surviving flats on the corner of Boundary Lane and Booth Street West.

There are rumours that yet more student accommodation will be built on the site of the Gamecock, a pub which has only stood here since 1974 when it opened as a Wilson's house, and seen in better nick in 1975 with its Watneys sign, above [1].
