Furness Abbey / Havelock Arms, Downing Street

Furness Abbey / Havelock Arms. (c) Manchester Local Image collection. Click here for full image [1].

The Furness Abbey stood for just over a hundred years at No.50 Downing Street on the Ardwick - Chorlton-on-Medlock border. Previously the Havelock Arms with an Ardwick Street address, the Furness Abbey was a Yates Castle Ardwick Brewery house [2]. Up the steep, difficult-looking steps and above the door, you can see licensee Nellie Davis, licensed to sell beer and porter [1]. The Furness Abbey was over the road from the Blacksmiths Arms.
