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.
