Crescent Inn, Rochdale Road

Crescent Inn, Rochdale Road, Collyhurst. (c) Bob Potts.

The Crescent Inn, shown above in the 1930s, stood opposite Hall's Crescent, an old stretch of Rochdale Road, which gave the beerhouse its name.  It opened in 1869 and passed to Walkers of Warrington before it was granted a full licence to sell wines and spirits, as well as beer, in 1955.  However, a compulsory purchase order just 14 years later saw the Crescent close in 1969 [1].  The Crescent Inn stood somewhere between Paget Street and Collyhurst Street along Rochdale Road.
