Old Bull, Fog Lane, Burnage. (c) Alan Winfield with permission.
The Bull Inn was a huge pub at the bottom end of Fog Lane in Burnage. Today Fog Lane ends at Kingsway but before the A34 was built, it carried on a bit further and the pub was on the corner of Burnage Lane. The Bull Inn is shown in 1905, 1959 and 1970 as a Hardy's Crown Ales house at the Manchester council's archives.
In the mid-1970s the pub was ridiculously renamed Woosters under Toby Inns, as shown here in 1975. The pub reverted back to the Bull, though as the Old Bull, as described by Alan Winfield in 1993 when it was a Bass house .
