Peveril of the Peak, Manchester


An astonishing building, this pub, a  two-storey mid-Victorian building was remodelled around 1900 and given a ceramic facing. The ground floor tiling is yellowy-green, while that on the upper storey is cream. The name of the pub, Peveril Of The Peak (the title of an 1823 book by Sir Walter Scott.) is included in dark orange tiling on two sides of the building, while the words Wines & Spirits are found on the end of the building. The serif letters have characteristics of the arts and crafts movement.

Location: Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, UK.
