Neptune Inn, Murray / Masonic Street

Neptune Inn, Murray Street, Miles Platting. (c) Adshead at Digital Archives [1].

On what was Murray Street in the 1851 [1] and 1891 maps [2], but Masonic Street by the 1920s, Neptune Inn was at the top end, just one building off Oldham Road on the Ancoats - Miles Platting border.  A couple of doors and streets along Oldham Road from the Angel, the Neptune is shown on Masonic Street in 1935 as a Cornbrook house.

Neptune Inn, Murray Street, 1891. (c) [2].

The Neptune escapes coverage in the late Neil Richardson's superb (and still available) book [3], and just about comes under Miles Platting.  The old location of the Neptune is just north of today's Butler Lane where the first of the tower blocks stands.
