Forge Tavern, Forge Lane

Forge Tavern, Forge Lane, Bradford. (c) Henry Bairsto [1].

The Forge Tavern was opposite the Bee Hive on Forge Lane (Alan Turing Way), near to the Bradford Pit entrance.  As such it was a popular place for miners and workers to sink a few pre- or post-shift pints; this time Wilsons rather than the Chesters available over the road.  Sadly, both these legendary Manchester ales are consigned to the slop tray of history...
