Dog & Partridge, Silk Street

Dog & Partridge, Silk Street, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

This Cornbrook Brewery house was lost in the St Matthias clearance area around Silk Street.  The Dog & Partridge opened in the 1850s but in 1898 it was deemed unsafe by the Borough Surveyor - he reported the beerhouse had begun to settle in the middle and the walls bulged. Cornbrook rebuilt the beerhouse, taking the butcher's which had stood next door.  The Dog & Partridge stood on Silk Street between Ann Street and Diamond Street - roughly where Brocade Close is today - and lasted until 1961 [1].
