Park Inn, Slack Lane / Monton Road

Park Inn, Slack Lane / Monton Road, Monton. (c) Tony Flynn [1].

The original Park Inn was a beerhouse that opened in 1867 when Monton Road was known as Slack Lane.  Monton was then described as a quiet hamlet in open fields stretching to Eccles and Winton.  The Park Inn was replaced by a new Park Hotel, built in 1902 costing Joseph Holt's brewery £5,000 plus the beer licenses of the Park Inn, Robin Hood and Britannia Inn which were surrendered [1].  This grand Holt's house was itself replaced in 1971 by the new Park Hotel estate style boozer.

  1. My local, when I lived in Monton. Might just be rumour, but I believe the building predating the current one was rebuilt due to mining subsidence.
