Shambles Square, The Old Wellington and Sinclair's Oyster Bar
Shambles Square, The Old Wellington and Sinclair's Oyster Bar
In 1974, when most of the old property between Shudehill and Market Street was demolished to accommodate Manchesterís new Arndale Shopping Centre, Sinclairís and the adjacent Old Wellington Inn were preserved. When the area was re-developed after the 1996 IRA bomb, it was decided that the buildings should be dismantled and moved 300 metres northwards to their present location, close to Manchester Cathedral. In 1999, the Old Wellington Inn and Sinclair's were rebuilt at 90 degrees to each other and joined together by a stone extension to form two sides of the new Shambles Square. Both are Grade II listed buildings.
