Peveril of the Peak: Great Bridgewater Street on right, Chepstow Street on left. Behind and to the right (i.e. both sides of Great Bridgewater Street) were the large Atlas Works of Sharp, Stewart

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).
