Worsley Hotel, West Worsley Street

The Worsley Hotel was diagonally opposite the Crown Inn on the south east corner of Tatton Street and West Worsley Street.  Fully licensed, the pub was built at a cost of £2,000 by George Lindsay in 1869, but by start of the next century Threlfalls owned the Worsley.  The brewery built new toilets in the yard and converted the upstairs clubroom into bedrooms although them new lavs meant that the bedrooms overlooking the yard were no longer used.  Like almost all the pubs in this northern part of Ordsall, the pub was closed and knocked down in the 1973 to make way for redevelopments [2].

  1. My Great great Grandfather - John Lord - was landlord at the Worsley hotel from about 1910 to his death in 1916. His son - Frederick Lord (my great uncle) took over and was still there in 1922 - after that the trail has gone cold.

  2. I think that my grandfather, William Cole, was the landlord sometime between 1922 and the start/end of WW2.
