Former location of Mechanics Arms, Whitley Road, Collyhurst. (c) Google 2013. View Larger Map.
The Mechanics Arms was a Cornbrook Ales house on Whitley Street, most probably on the corner of Teignmouth Street. This part of Collyhurst was significantly redeveloped in the 1960s and many streets were lost, though a new one was Talgarth Street a few yard along from the part-pedestrianised Teignmouth Street. The new street recently lost the Billy Greens estate pub in 2012, but the Mechannics went in 1960 due to a compulsory purchase order, having stood here since 1867 . The 1958 photo at the archive shows the Mechanics Arms at number 29-33 Whitley Street, these days Whitley Road.
