Mechanics Rest, Chester Street

Mechanics Rest, Chester Street, Hulme. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Mechanics Rest served at number 84 Chester Street from 1846 to 1927, owned by the Walker & Son brewery of Warrington [1].  Chester Street used to run from Great Jackson Street to Oxford Road, and today it still runs from Oxford Road over to Newcastle Street, boasting a new development of restaurants and the Courtyard further down.
