Raglan Hotel, Radnor Street

Raglan Hotel, Radnor Street, Hulme, 1966. (c) Olga Cave / Bob Potts [1].

The Raglan Hotel stood on Radnor Street, on the corner with Embden Street and Raglan Street in southern Hulme.  It opened in 1856 and was a fully-licensed public house, eventually under Threlfalls Brewery [2].  It lasted over a century, closing in 1965, still under Threlfalls [1].  The former location of the Raglan Hotel is difficult to work out, but was roughly where Rawkin Close is in modern Hulme; Radnor Street used to head south off Stretford Road, where today's Shearsby Close runs.  Like their namesake, the Lord Raglan, over on Regent Road, the Raglan Hotel and Raglan Street will have been named after Lord Raglan, a celebrated soldier.
