Hanging Gate, Tatton Street

The Hanging Gate beerhouse on the corner of Doddington Street and Tatton Street closed in December 1971 after the neighbouring house collapsed and damaged it, although I suspect its demolition soon after was also part of the Ordsall regeneration scheme.  It's pictured above, and in Neil Richardson's book, a few months after it had closed.  The Hanging Gate was first licensed in 1867 and was a Cornbrook Brewery house by the start of the following century.  By the 1960s it had passed to the giants, Bass, before its closure.  The name 'Hanging Gate' stemmed from the gate which used to be fixed on the corner wall which read "This gate hangs well and hinders none. Refresh, pay and carry on" [2].
