The Bowling Green still ticks alongs nicely as a local's pub on Brookburn Road today, just off the thriving Chorlton Green, but it's only been there in its present form for just over a century. The original Bowling Green Hotel dates back to about 1780 and stood until 1908 when it was demolished after the present pub was built . It's not clear whether the original Bowling Green was on Brookburn Road or somewhere close by, but that may be St Clements Church in the photograph below.
