Butler Inn, Butler Street

Butler Inn, Butler Street, Ancoats. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

Opening in 1834, the Butler Inn was on the corner of Daniel Street and Butler Street, described as "a first class beerhouse, the best stand in Manchester... with a new vault."  As pictured in Neil Richardson's book exactly a century ago, it was a Walkers of Warrington house, and closed in 1937 [1].  The site of the old Butler Inn is now taken by the estate pub-resembling Trinity Methodist Church on the corner of what is now the southern end of Ridgway Street.
