Stirling Castle, South Street, Longsight. (c) Manchester Libraries. View Full Picture .
The Stirling Castle was a Chesters house on the corner of South Street and Dillon Street at the north-eastern, Ardwick-end of Longsight. There is a photo of the Stirling Castle at Manchester History  which describes Sand Park, the lost children's playground that the pub looked onto. This is marked Rec. Grd. on the map of the area, below, possibly from the 1940s. Some of South Street still still runs through this part of Longsight but the other streets have been lost following development of the area in the late 1960s and early '70s.
