Grove House / Jacobs Well, Ellor Street

Grove House, Ellor Street, Hanky Park. (c) Paul Wilson with posthumous permission.

Jacobs Well was a beerhouse on the corner of Ellor Street (bottom end) and Elizabeth Street in Hanky Park, opening in the mid-1850s.  Groves & Whitnall bought Jacobs Well by 1896 and the brewery renamed the beerhouse after themselves, as Grove House.  A compulsory purchase order in 1959 - presumably an early part of the Hanky Park slum clearances - saw off the Grove House in 1960.  Then landlords, George and Tilly Banner, moved to the Park Inn on Tatton Street, Ordsall, which was later to become the Rovers Return [1].
