Golden Gate / Craven Heifer, Cross Lane

Another of Cross Lane's lost pubs in Salford, like the Corporation, the Golden Gate has also found alternative use, this time as a mini-mart, Windsor, which I believe has also shut down in the last couple of years.  Follow the link to the above photo which also mentions the Royal Oak which once stood next door.

The Golden Gate sits at the roundabout where Churchill Way joins Cross Lane, the pub being on the corner of Culverwell Drive, not too far from The Crescent.  The pub is shown in happier times below, a couple of decades ago in 1990 as a Whitbread house.  The Golden Gate was originally the Craven Heifer, a name which it held into the early 20th century.
