Brunswick, Grey Mare Lane, Beswick. (c) Manchester Local Image Collection. Click here to view full image .
The Brunswick was a Wilsons house on the corner of Gillingham Street and Grey Mare Lane in Beswick. Seen here in 1963, the Brunswick's old side door was bricked up and the pub was looking in a state of disrepair, at least externally, but looked a bit better from the rear. Gillingham Street appears to once have run off Grey Mare Lane, roughly where the new Beswick Library is. This means that the old Bobbin estate pub might have been the Brunswick's replacement during the relatively brief existence of Fort Beswick.
