Clarence Inn, Upper Brook Street

The Clarence Inn was at No.17 Upper Brook Street in Chorlton-on-Medlock.  It was owned by the Peter Walker & Son brewery of Warrington, and closed in 1972.  This archive image from 1970 shows the Clarence Inn in 1970 with the new estates of Chorlton-on-Medlock going up behind it.  It has been dated back to 1864 by the painstakingly comprehensive Pub History website, who also note it was a Tetley's house before it closed [2].  The Clarence straddled Rosamond Place and Caygill Street, both of which have been lost and replaced with Inchley Road and the Jaguar dealership stands on the site of the old Clarence.
