Townley, Charlesworth Street

Townley, Charlesworth Street, Beswick. (c) Manchester Local Image Collection.

The Townley is best known these days as one of the Manchester City pre-match watering holes, one of a couple of Beswick's surviving estate pubs.  It stands on Albert Street but the original Townley was a big Threlfalls corner pub on Charlesworth Street, probably on this corner.  There is a full 1963 image of the original Townley at the archives, and as is ever the case with estate pubs, its replacement is a shadow of the old boozer.

  1. The 1963 version looks like a proper boozer. Can't really say the same for the re-make though.

  2. Really a very nice post.Thanks for sharing the valuable information regarding manchester bars.
