Sportsmans Rest, Bredbury
Sportsmans Rest, 99 Higher Bents Lane, Bredbury, Stockport, Greater Manchester
19c pub, formerly owned by Bell & Co. Ltd of Stockport.
On the left-hand painted gable wall were the remains of a large sign, just detectable as raised lettering: 'THE SPORTSMANS REST.' and 'BELLS STOCKPORT ALES.' (Note that full stops included in the sign.) The pub was converted to residential use in about 2011, and Google shows the wall rendered-over by 2017.
