The Alexandra Inn stood on the corner of Montague Street and Lower Broughton Road, a site which is still there today marked by this tree at the corner of Heath Avenue. The beerhouse opened in the 1860s, becoming a Groves & Whitnall house which passed to Greenall Whitley's before its closure in 1976. The Alexandra had been spared from the original Lower Broughton clearance area. However, a public enquiry sealed its fate in 1974 , and rather than a boozer, this tree now serves the new population.
