The Rose of Lancaster

The Rose of Lancaster public house dates from the 1800s and was one the haunt of local radicals and reformers. Two local people were killed, and many more injured, at Manchester’s infamous Peterloo Massacre in 1819 when a crowd of 60,000 – 80,000 gathered to demand the reform of parliamentary representation.
