Packhorse Inn


The Packhorse Inn at Mottram in Longdendale.

As its name implies, this was once an important coaching inn on the route from Sheffield to Manchester.

What a lovely old building! I love how you all value historical and cultural preservation. I think it's wonderful.

A nice looking Inn. It looks the place for a few pints of real ale.

A proper pub, not a chain pub. Waggon and Horses used to be a popular midlands pub name for the same ressons.
