Cloggers Arms, Oldham Road

The Cloggers Arms stood at No. 288 Oldham Road, on the corner with Dulverton Street in Newton Heath.  It's seen at the Manchester Local Image Archives in 1958, and then in 1970 with its main door bricked up, but an expanded white-washed frontage.  In the 1970 photo you can see the huge building next door which still stands today, grandly spanning Dulverton Street and Old Church Street, operating as a kitchen and porn shop.  In its heyday this building was the locally-famous Co-Op department store with its grand clock tower, and later housed an amusement arcade.  On the other side of the street where the Cloggers Arms used to stand, there is nothing.
