Queens Arms / Gas Works Tavern, Rochdale Road

Former location of Queens Arms / Gas Works Tavern, Rochdale Road. (c) googlemaps.

This corner of Clive Street was once the corner of Cobourg Street where the Queens Arms was licensed from 1858 to 1936, when it had to close as the licence was was judged to not be required.  The pub was previously named the Gas Works Tavern, after the Rochdale Road Gasworks which were nearby, as listed in the 1864 Robertson's Directory and Manchester Guardian in 1868 [1].
