Chequered Flag, Boundary Lane

Another of Hulme's new-build estate pubs, the Chequered Flag seen here in 1972 was a Tetley's house built to serve the new but ultimately ill-fated communities of the regenerated Hulme.  It has been described a "strange place full of ne'er do wells", "a mental institute with beer and prescriptions" and the sort of pub you'd bump into the bloke who'd just tried to mug you on the Crescents.  It was on the now lost Harvington Walk, with Brackenbury Walk to the rear, just off Boundary Lane and Arnott Crescent.  It's been demolished for years now but still crops up on the odd Manchester pub listings website.
