The White Lion stood on the corner of Benville Street and Oldham Road in Newton Heath. Unsurprisingly, it was a Wilsons house - Wilsons Brewery was on Monsall Street in Newton Heath. The White Lion appears to have been lost to the creation of the Troydale estate, and Benville Walk in the estate marks the rough location of where Benville Street met Oldham Road and the pub once stood.
