White Horse Inn, Broom House Lane, Eccles. (c) Tony Flynn .
When the old White Horse (formerly the Shovel & Broom, Trafford Volunteer and Volunteer) was rebuilt by Robinsons Brewery, the grand-looking White Horse Hotel opened in 1935. It dodged a bombing in 1941 during WWII but couldn't survive the M602 being built in 1969, and the estate-style White Horse was built to replace it, about 200 yards away on the Eccles-Salford border. This pub itself, well known for being ran for years by Coronation Street's 'Liz McDonald', was reported to be at risk and is now closed awaiting conversion into a Sainsbury's supermarket.
