Waggon & Horses / Dog & Partridge, Liverpool Road

Waggon & Horses, Liverpool Road, Patricroft, Eccles. (c) Tony Flynn [1].

The original Waggon & Horses was first known as the Dog & Partridge and can be traced back to 1773 as one of the oldest pubs in the Peel Green area of Eccles.  The pub went through a host of names changes, being The Dog, the Black Dog, the Greyhound, and the Black Greyhound, before settling for the Waggon & Horses in 1824.  The pub shown above in an ancient photograph was rebuilt in 1856 as the Waggon & Horses [1], which stood until the early 2000s but is now the site of a Netto supermarket.
