Blue Bell, Pin Mill Brow, Ardwick. (c) www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html.
The Blue Bell stood on Pin Mill Brow on the corner with Crowther's Buildings in the norther part of Ardwick, as seen here in 1964. It was a Wilsons boozer and was established in 1900, as the plaque on the front of the pub shows here, also in 1964.

The 1891 map (top) shows the corner building so the Blue Bell had a previous use or was re-built as the Wilsons house a few years later. Today this side of Pin Mill Brow - named after a cotton mill, see top - is a rather large shrubbery.
