Tinplate Workers Arms, Red Bank. (c) Old Maps .
At the bottom of Red Bank, facing the Crown & Cushion (until recently Manchester's oldest licensed premises) was the Tinplate Workers Arms. It was situated just before the railway bridge that crosses the Medlock and Red Bank known as Scotland Bridge.

The view from the Tinplate Workers Arms would have, for many years, been the grand-looking Crown & Cushion, a pub which dated back to 1741.

Of course, this traditional old Holt's has sadly fallen victim to the Co-Op's ambitious redevelopments and closed in 2011 so the same view today is somewhat different.
