Angel Inn
Angel Inn

The Angel Inn dates from the 1790s and had a theatre where it was possible to have a drink and enjoy a night of thespian magic. Afterwards further "pleasures" were available with the ladies of the night in the inn's notorious Angel Yard behind. It was completely refronted in 1886 by the Stockport architect Thomas Allen. The fašade has ornate plasterwork to the upper floor. The lower part is modelled to resemble masonry, with window surrounds with angel's heads, a frieze above and a panel which formerly had the name Angel Inn. Above is a triglyph frieze, and large cross patterns, a bracketed cornice and parapet. It closed in 1951.

In recent times it was Chafe's solicitors SJ8990 : 20 Market Place until 2010 and then became the home of Seven Miles Out, a digital and visual arts centre SJ8990 : Seven Miles Out. Now it has re-opened as the Angel Inn.
