Heginbotham’s Brewery, Stalybridge

Stalybridge had a brewery in days gone by, obvious really, all those mill operatives would have needed a pint our two after a hard days work.

I have a poster on the wall in my kitchen advertising “Heginbotham’s Fine Ales & Stout”. To be honest I could do with a large pint of their fine ale now…

Heginbotham’s Brewery supplied a number of pubs locally including the Albion Inn, 47-49 Market Street in Stalybridge. The brewery went into liquidation in 1914 and was bought by Robinsons of Stockport.

From this picture it looks to me like house in the foreground is on Grosvenor Street and the brewery was therefore around where the Melbourne Street Carpark is now. What do you think?

And….I have to say the camper van/mini bus in the picture looks fab!

Thankfully Stalybridge has a brewery once again; TicketyBrew. They are based near the train station and most importantly are stocked in the world famous Stalybridge Station Buffet Bar so commuters can have a well earned drink as they return to Stalybridge after a tough day in the big city.

      Thanks Phil, that’s what I thought. My son is at Gorse Hall School so I walk past the house on Grosvenor Street daily and thought I recognised it. Thanks for the info re Wainwright Engineering. Steph/
