Didsbury Pubs .............. stories, paintings and a bit more ........ nu 2 the Didsbury Hotel

A short series reflecting on some of the Didsbury pubs Peter has painted and I have spent time in.

I have to confess it will be a long series given that both of us over the years can claim to have been in all of them, although never I hasten to add been thrown out.

This is the Didsbury Hotel.

The Didsbury Hotel was built around 1855 and incorporated an older pub on the same site called the Church Inn which early in the 19th century was known as the Ring of Bells.

Originally the arched entrance with its garage sign advertised the bowling green which was behind the pub and to the  left.

So there you have it, a little bit of pub history which just leaves me to do the outrageous plus....... you find Peter’s painting in our book Didsbury Through Time, available at Morton’s Bookshop, and at the this very moment we are working on  Manchester Pubs, The stories behind the Doors
