SJ8398 : Kennedy Street: Three Pubs

taken 5 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Kennedy Street: Three Pubs
Kennedy Street: Three Pubs
On the corner of Cooper Street is the rear of the Waterhouse. The premises were made up of three town houses. It is believed that they were once used as an orphanage. Later it was a solicitor's office. Now it is a Wetherspoon's pub. It is named after Alfred Waterhouse, the architect of the Town Hall that stands across Princess Street from the front of the pub.

Next door is the City Arms. This was an Empress Brewery house in the 1930s, Walkers in the 1970s and by 1994 a Tetley's house. LinkExternal link

The City Arms occupies a former 18th Century town house. The Vine Inn next door occupies two buildings. The first is also an 18th Century town house, with a row of windows on the upper floor that resemble those in a weaver's cottage. The pub extends into the building next door, that was once an office/warehouse building. Their conversion to public houses took place before 1886. LinkExternal link
