Pickford Inn, Fenwick Street

Pickford Inn, Fenwick Street, Moss Side. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Pickford Inn was an old Boddingtons beerhouse on Fenwick Street off Moss Lane East on the Hulme-Moss Side border.  It opened in 1863 and was named after Thomas Pickford of the well-known Pickford's haulage firm which still operates today.  Pickford had lived in the large 'Mayfield' house, the grounds of which Pickford Street passed through during its construction [1].  The Pickford Inn passed to Walkers of Warrington before it closed in 1932 [2].  Fenwick Strete was replaced by the Moss Side Shopping Precinct, which itself has been demolished.
