Carlton, Camp Street

The Carlton is a sorry sight these days on the corner of Grecian Street and Camp Street in Lower Broughton.  A fire at the recently boarded up pub a couple of years ago has left it in an advanced state of disrepair, such that its freehold for sale at just £80,000.

The Carlton can be traced back to a grocers and tea shop in 1850 which was soon expanded to a post office, and by 1965, owner John Harrop had a beer licence.  By the 1880s, a music licence was obtained for the beerhouse now known as the Carlton Inn [1].

In 1883 an application was turned down to build a new public house on the site of the Carlton which was to serve the rapidly expanding population in the Broughton area of Salford.  However, by the 1900s, Empress Brewery had the Carlton and expanded it into the house next door [1].

As shown above in 1931, the next owners were Walkers of Warrington and by the 1960s the Carlton was a Tetley's house [1].  Burtonwood were next owners in 1993 as shown by Alan Winfield a couple of years later.  In its later years it looks like it was a Pub Co concern, and predictably, was allowed to run down before its inevitable closure.
