Fountain Inn, Bradford Road

Fountain Inn, Bradford Road, Miles Platting. (c) What's Doing [1].

The Fountain Inn was just down Bradford Road from the still surviving Bradford Inn in Miles Platting, close to Eastlands.  The keg-only John Smiths house, previously a Groves & Whitnall pub, was up for sale in the early 1990s when pictured by Alan Winfield at Pubs Galore[2].  I think the old location of the Fountain was the corner of what is the pedestrianised end of Gleden Street, now replaced by council houses.
