Prince of Wales, Moss Lane West

Former location of Prince of Wales, Moss Lane West, Moss Side. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.

The Prince of Wales was a huge Wilsons house on the corner of Upper Moss Lane and Moss Lane West, as shown here in 1970.  While Moss Lane West survived the Moss Side regeneration of the 1970s, Upper Moss Lane only has a short span remaining to the north in Hulme; the lower section seen here in 1972 is long-gone.  The Prince of Wales stood next to the Williams & Glyn's bank, as seen in 1972, and used to also mark the last stop on the Manchester Corporation Tram route from town, until the 1920s when they were carried on until Whalley Range.

  1. I recall passing the Prince of Wales many times on the 80/88 bus, as a kid on my way back home to Chorlton from Manchester. This would be around 1968/69 and the pub was still standing but closed.
