Swan, Eccles New Road

Swan, Eccles New Road, Weaste. (c) Salford Pubs of the 70s at flickr [1].

The Swan closed in 1996 and was pulled down a year or two later and has made way for the Weaste tram stop on the Eccles line.  Shown here as a Chesters then Whitbread branded house, its neighbour, the Grey Mare survived although has recently closed its doors and is tinned up [1].

Alan Winfield photographed the Swan in 1995 as a Vaux pub [2].  As shown below, the garage from which the 1972 photo was taken is long gone like the Swan.

  1. used to love going in the swan remember it well as I used to work round the corner

  2. I used to live there in around 1987/88. To say it was haunted is an understatement.
