Pack Horse, Bolton Road

Pack Horse, Bolton Road, Irlams O'Th'Height. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

The Pack Horse was built in 1934 to replace a pub of the same name which was the oldest pub in Irlams O'Th'Height.  The original Pack Horse can be traced back to at least 1600, but that's another story.

Joseph Holt's rebuilt the Pack Horse in mock Tudor style, as seen top in 1949 and below in 1971, and it lasted until 14th September 1975.  The pub had to go to make way for the Height roundabout so was demolished later in 1975 [1].
