Sir Humphrey Chetham, Ashton New Road

City's move to the area was just too late for the Sir Humphrey Chetham on Ashton New Road in Clayton.  It had closed its doors a few years earlier and isn't that recognisable as an old Chesters (1960) and Whitbread house (1970).  The pub goes back to at least 1863 as John Eccles was recorded here in the Slater's Directory [1].  The Sir Humphrey Chetham is shown here by Alan Winfield at Pubs Galore.  The old pub stands between two other match day pubs, the Grove (a good Holts house) and Derby Arms.
