Clarence Inn, Bedford Street

Clarence Inn, Bedford Street, Hulme. (c) Arthur Brougham with family's permission.

The Clarence Inn opened at No.39 Bedford Street in Hulme in 1863 [1].  It was situated just off York Street on the corner with Hazel Street which ran between Bedford Street and Rutland Street.  Since Hulme was redeveloped in the 1960s, this street layout has been lost.

Pictured top in 1963 thanks to Arthur Brougham, and above in the 1950s, the Clarence Inn closed in 1963 as a Wilsons house having previously been owned by the Naval Brewery [2].  The former location of the Clarence is now roughly on the corner of Old York Street and Royce Road.
