The Hand & Heart was a Chesters pub on the corner of Chapel Grove and Ashton Old Road in Beswick, pretty much opposite the Grey Mare.  Shown here in the 1960s looking down Chapel Grove, by 1971 the Hand & Heart was closed and in the process of demolition.

Although not shown on the 1891 map like the Grey Mare Hotel [2], the exact location of Chapel Grove and the Hand & Heart was just after Pottery Lane going away from town, where a Seamark unit stands today.
