Swan Hotel, Chancellor Lane

Former location of Swan Hotel, Chancellor Lane, Ardwick. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.

The Swan Hotel used to stand on this corner of Chancellor Lane and Dark Lane in Ardwick.  The three-storey Chesters house is shown in 1963 with its grand tiled frontage to both streets.  That photo also shows a Shell petrol station sign on the other side of Dark Lane; this has been replaced by a Manchester Food Trader while a Nissan showroom car park now stands on the site of the Swan Hotel.  This page at the brilliant Manchester Museum of Science & Industry mentions Ken Martin who was brought up at the Swan Hotel, "just off Ashton Old Road in Ardwick", to Irish parents, publicans at the Swan [1].
