Grosvenor Arms / Glue Pot, Eldridge Drive

The Grosvenor Arms estate pub is better known to locals as the Glue Pot, and has sadly closed its doors recently, seemingly for the last time.  Tucked away down the residential Eldridge Drive in the Troydale Estate in Newton Heath, the Glue Pot was also nicknamed as the Bottle & Jug back in the day.

The Glue Pot shut in early 2013 and was last seen up for sale for a paltry £70,000 at auction.  This old Lees Brewery house has had something of a dodgy reputation over the years, but even so it was a well-used pub and it's disappointing to see another community boozer bite the dust.  UPDATE: The Glue Pot has reopened as of August 2013.
