Jabez Clegg - the former Holy Name Church Hall

As the bricks above the door say, the Holy Name Church Hall was built in 1892.  The architect was Edmund Kirby.

Today the hall is home to the Jabez Clegg Beer Hall and a night club on the upper floor.  Named after the hero of Mrs. Linnaeus Banks' book, 'A Manchester Man".

The Jabez Clegg website describes itself as follows: "Situated in the heart of the University of Manchester Campus, Jabez Clegg is the ideal place to meet with friends or hold a party.
