Beehive, Rake Lane, Pendlebury, Salford. (c)Neil Richardson & Roger Hall .
The Beehive was an large interwar estate pub built by Walkers of Warrington when they took over the Worsley Brewery (at some point in the 1920s) who'd previously owned the original Bee Hive nearby. The new Beehive on Rake Lane was always a popular local for the nearby housing estates of Cliveley and Rake Lane, on the outskirts of Pendlebury and Swinton . In recent years, however, the Beehive has become yet another suburban pub to close, and these days it's the Holyrood Nursery.
