Peveril of The Peak
Peveril of The Peak
This famous triangular pub at the corner of Great Bridgewater St and Chepstow St is one of Manchester’s most distinctive public houses with its cladding of green and greenish-yellow ceramic tiles contrasting with the modern office and apartment blocks surrounding it.

The Peveril of the Peak was built in the 1820s and remodelled around the end of the nineteenth century (when the cladding was added) (LinkExternal link ). The name is said to commemorate a horse-drawn stagecoach that ran between Manchester and London (Market St. to London via Derbyshire) “Peveril” referring to Peveril Castle near Castleton (LinkExternal link Manchester History Net).

The building is Grade II listed as a “Good example of turn of the century public house remodelling and retains its contemporary plan, fittings and decoration” (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
