The New Inn is shown on the corner of Darley Street and Ashton New Road in 1970, a grand old pub that was left standing whilst all the houses around it were pulled down in the name of redevelopment. This 1964 photo looking down Darley Street shows the New Inn in the background of the old Beswick terraces.

The above drawing of the New Inn by Alf Proctor, a 90-year-old expat living in Australia, depicts the pub in happier times . The old location of the New Inn must have been on the diagonally opposite corner to the Cricketers Rest, which places it on the corner of Mercedes garage entrance in the shadow of City's stadium.
