Ship Inn

 

 

 
The Ship Inn was situated on the corner of Chapel Street and Victoria Bridge Street and was very popular with employees of HMIT who then occupied what was Highland House. This pub was demolished when Highland House was sold off to developers and turned into a Premier Inn.

I just came across this odd notice in the Manchester Guardian for December 1st 1857---
Notice - If the cow left at the Ship Inn, Chapel Street, Salford on 1st December 1858 be not taken away and all expenses paid within 14 days, she will be sold to defray the same.
Perhaps that was the Victorian equivalent of forgetting where you’ve parked your car after a night out!
