Stonemasons Arms, Lower Cambridge Street

The Stonemasons Arms stood on the corner of Whittaker Street and Lower Cambridge Street, on the border of Hulme and Chorlton-on-Medlock.  It closed at No.73 Lower Cambridge Street in 1961 as a Hardy's Brewery house [2], and has since been swallowed up by expansion of the University.  The Stonemasons Arms used to stand on the other side of Cambridge Street and a little further north of where the still-serving Church Inn is, near the Cambridge Halls of Residence and the Cambridge Street roundabout of the Mancunian Way.
