Blue Bell, Reather Street

Blue Bell, Reather Street, Collyhurst, 1929. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Blue Bell stood from 1836 to 1963 before it was lost to development.  It was on Reather Street which used to run from Rochdale Road towards Oldham Road in Collyhurst, and it is all-but-lost except for the short Reather Walk today.  The Blue Bell was an Empress Brewery, Walkers of Warrington and then Tetley's house before the compulsory purchase order for development came [1].

  1. If this is Reather St & Oldham Rd, then the Blue Bell must have become the "Vulcan" and a Threefalls Pub at some point prior to 1963? Or was it a different pub?
