Wheatsheaf, Regent Road

Wheatsheaf, Regent Road, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

The Wheatsheaf was a small beerhouse with parlour and kitchen on the corner of West Burton Street and Regent Road, opening at some time point in the 1860s.  Beers on offer in the early days were from the Greatorex Brewery of Moss Side but by the early 1900s Wilsons Brewery owned it.  They expanded the Wheatsheaf by surrendering their licence of the Crown on Ellor Street, and spread into the sweet shop next door [1].

The Wheatsheaf lasted until 1974 when it closed and was knocked down a few years later [2] for Regent Road widening.  The old location of this old Wilsons house was roughly here on the south side of Regent Road, on this corner of a short stump of road which roughly matches up to the old West Burton Street.
