The Junction


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

"J" is for "Junction" and today's photo shows the Junction Inn on Turner Lane.

It is well-named for no fewer than seven roads converge onto the spot in front of the pub! You can see these by clicking on the Google Street View below and swivelling around 360 degrees.

The pub has been fully licensed since 1854. It has appeared on this blog before, along with the other pub in Ashton of the same name.

See Birds Eye View of this location. The current view shows part of Turner Lane closed for road works.

See Google Street View of this location.

"The Junction" is a contribution to ABC Wednesday. For more "J" posts from around the world please follow this link.

  1. Seven roads! Wow, you really need to know where you're going in that case. You might get lost otherwise...

  7. I too used to play in that space in front of 'The Junction' when I lived in Turner Lane in the early 1950s. My great aunt who lived as a child at 74 Turner Lane remembered being sent with a jug to the pub to get her father some beer to have with his Sunday dinner.
