Bobbin, Grey Mare Lane, Beswick. (c) DN at Manmates Facebook .
What used to house Beswick Library on Grey Mare Mare until 2006, the Bobbin was a classic, grim estate pub attached to the notorious (and almost as infamous as its Hulme and Ardwick counterparts) flats of Fort Beswick. It was a Greenall Whitley boozer and is pictured above in May 1985 thanks to the ManMates Facebook pages.
