Nelson Inn, Upper Jackson Street

Nelson Inn, Upper Jackson Street, Hulme, 1960s. (c) Bob Potts [1].

This Chesters house opened in 1859 [2] and lasted over a hundred years until it was demolished in 1970 [1] as pat of the Hulme regeneration efforts of the time.  Bizarrely, as the Nelson Inn was being knocked down, the oddball city planners had commissioned a new pub to open next door, the infamous estate pub, the  Sir Henry Royce.  The newly-erected grim Hulme Crescents can be seen behind the old and new pubs on the newly-christened Chichester Road.
