  Old Wellington
by sandysmith

Just before you reach Manchester Cathedral this lovely old pub - The Old Wellingon - remains sandwhiched amongst other builings on the old market site. Its Manchester's oldest pub, dating back to 1550. Seeing it here took me completely by surprise - I hadn't realised Manchester still had buildings like this! Its fortunate to be still here at all as it was badly damamged in the IRA bombing of 1996 and has undergone restorative work. An extremely popular place on a Saturday afternoon for a drink and a snack - looked like standing room only.
