Now only the new remains

Looking across the A6 Chapel Street towards the Beetham Tower and other new tower blocks in the background. Compare with the view in 2009 SJ8298 : Old and New. In the foreground then was Ye Olde Nelson, an ornate building and one of the landmarks of the city, built in 1899 on the site of a pub which had opened for business in 1805, the year Vice Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson died as his fleet defeated the French and Spanish. It was still there in 2015 SJ8298 : Ye Old Nelson, Chapel Street, Salford. Developers had initially agreed to keeping at least its facade but now it has gone.
The A6
The A6 is Britain's fourth longest road and one of the main historic north-south roads in England. It currently runs for 299 miles from Luton in Bedfordshire to Carlisle in Cumbria, although it formerly started at a junction with the A1 at Barnet.

Running north west from Luton, the road travels through Bedford, bypasses Rushden, Kettering and Market Harborough, continues through Leicester, Loughborough, Derby and Matlock before going through the Peak District to Bakewell, Buxton, Stockport, Manchester, Salford, Pendleton, Irlams o' th' Height, Pendlebury, Swinton, Walkden, Little Hulton, Bolton, Chorley, Preston, Lancaster, Kendal and Penrith before reaching Carlisle.
