Bulls Head, Collyhurst Road

Bulls Head Tavern, Collyhurst Road, Collyhurst, 1851. (c) Adshead at Digital Archives [1].

The Bulls Head Tavern can be traced back to 1795 and lasted until 1937, when Chesters Brewery surrendered its license for one at the Woodcourt Hotel in Brooklands, Sale [2].  The Bulls Head, which had an attached brewhouse, stood on the corner of Delph Street and Collyhurst Road, just south of Barlow Street and Vauxhall Street, facing a dye works.  The kink in the River Irk that existed in 1851, and contained the dye works, had been diverted by the time the 1922 map was published.  These days, only Vauxhall Street remains of the little side streets off Collyhurst Road
