Angel Hotel, Chester Road, Stretford. (c) Trafford Council. Click here to view full image .
The landmark Stretford estate pub, the Drum, has recently closed and is sadly set for demolition. Before the Bass Drum (to give it its original full name) and its sister pub, the lost Kettledrum over in Salford, were built, the Angel Hotel used to stand on this site. Even before this, an original Angel pub stood here which can be traced back to 1780 - it was a whitewashed coaching inn with its own brewery .
