Elephant & Castle, Hodson Street

Elephant & Castle, Hodson Street, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson (1980).

Until relatively recently, the Braziers Arms was a well-known public house on this street off Garden Lane in old Salford. Hodson Street's beerhouse, the Elephant & Castle, closed many years earlier. It was on the same side as the Braziers, about 50 yards from Garden Street. The Elephant & Castle can be dated back to 1836 and appears on the 1848 map (#64, above) alongside its larger neighbour (#65) [1]. The beerhouse had an eight-barrel brewery of its own and by the 1880s it had extended into the next door property. The Elephant & Castle closed in 1905 under Sam Norbury [2], and the Trinity Road ringroad now passes over its old location.

  1. This post helped me to know about the illusion of control. I think it is the tendency for people to overrate their ability to control different events. It occurs when someone feels a sense of control over outcomes that they demonstrably do not influence.Jogo para menina online

  2. I would like to thank Ultimate Life Clinic for reversing my father's Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). My father’s ALS condition was fast deteriorating before he started on the ALS Herbal medicine treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic. He was on the treatment for just 6 months and we never thought my father will recover so soon. He has gained some weight in the past months and he is able to walk with no support.
