Britannia Inn, Upper Jackson Street

Britannia Inn, Upper Jackson Street, Hulme (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Britannia Inn was first licensed in 1861 and was a Greatorex Brothers house.  This brewery were once based at the Queens Brewery, Moss Side, where Hydes Brewery have just moved from, to Salford.  The Britannia stood on the corner of Naylor Street and Upper Jackson Street, just south of Stretford Road, where Old Birley Street runs today.  From Greatorex it passed to the Empress Brewery and then Peter Walker & Son of Warrington, before it closed in 1966 for Hulme's redevelopment [2].
