Bowling Green Inn (1), 2 Bowling Street, Hollinwood, Oldham
Bowling Green Inn (1), 2 Bowling Street, Hollinwood, Oldham
The postal address is Bowling Street, but the main frontage seen here is to Manchester Road (A62). It is a J W Lees house. They are an independent family owned brewery based at Middleton in the north of Manchester, and were established in 1828.

In the past it was not uncommon for an inn or public house to have a bowling green attached, and some still have them. This is an example having a bowling green and a beer garden. It also has accommodation available. Whether bowls are still played here I don't know.
