The old and renovated Pear Tree Cottage in Springpool, off Pemberton Road in Winstanley. In the early 1960s, it was a quite select restaurant run by Mr. Peter Kay and Miss Brown. Brian Epstein with The Beatles used to dine there.
Springpool used to be the strawyard, sawmill, and workshop for Bankes' estate. Cropper's House, the home of James Cropper the abolitionist, used to be opposite Pear Tree Cottage.
