Horseshoe Inn, Buxton Street

Horseshoe Inn, Buxton Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Horseshoe Inn, which dates back to 1838, was on the corner of  Buxton Street, later renamed Ardnance Street [1].  The Horseshoe was at No.25 Buxton Street, which was a small road off Saville Street, which was off Oxford Road opposite Chester Street.  The beerhouse was owned first by the City Brewery, then Creese & Co. before ending its time as a Wilsons house in 1964 [2].  Of course, the former BBC building was built over this site and last year this itself was pulled down due to the creation of Media City at Salford Quays.  The site forms one of Manchester's many surface car parks (or zombie car parks) while the unscrupulous land owners, Realty Estates, decide what to claim they'll do to it.
