Griffin / York Minster, York Street

Griffin, York Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Griffin Inn stood on the corner Boundary Street East and York Street, just off Grosvenor Street in Chorlton-on-Medock.  It opened in 1857 as the York Minster (listed as such in the 1871 census) and lasted until 1970 [1].  Pictured above as a Bass Brewery house, it was also previously under the ownership of Ratcliff & Gretton brewery [2].  Both this stretch of York Street and Boundary Street East are still in existence today, and the former location of the old Griffin / York Minster is opposite two more recently closed York Street pubs - Korumba and Scubar / Green McNally's / Old Steam Brewery.
