The Star Inn was a small beerhouse on the corner of Ryall Street and Martha Street, the latter of which used to run from Oxford Street, across Ordsall to Goodiers Lane near Broadway. The Star opened in 1868 and Groves & Whitnall bought it and the house next door in the 1890s , and presumably then passed to Greenall Whitley as the sign in the photo above suggests . The beerhouse stayed in business until 1972 when it was yet another victim of Ordsall regeneration. The old location of the Star Inn is pretty much where Craven Avenue is marked on the map today.
