Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester
The Peveril of the Peak is a traditional Manchester pub, built c.1829, and named after a stagecoach which ran to London. It is a rare survivor in an area which was once a hive of industry, but which has lost most of its character. No doubt many of its customers in the 19th century would have been employees of the extensive locomotive and engineering works of Sharp Brothers, later Sharp, Roberts and Co, and finally Sharp, Stewart and Co (Atlas Works).
