Wellington / Ackers Arms, Higher Chatham Street

Wellington, Higher Chatham Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Wellington Inn opened in 1823 [1] the corner of Booth Street West and Higher Chatham Street off Oxford Road in Chorlton-on-Medlock.  It was formerly known as the Ackers Arms and stood at No.50 Higher Chatham Street, closing in 1967 as the Wellington Hotel, a Chesters house [2].  The old pre-re-development road layout still survives around here but Higher Chatham Street has been commandeered by the University and forms this entrance to the campus.
