The Post War Pubs of Greater Manchester

Prompted by the recent Historic England call for the listing of Britain’s post war pubs I have begun cycling, exploring and recording those examples within Greater Manchester.

I have used my own local knowledge and the invaluable prompt of this existing site:

http://manchester-estate-pubs.blogspot.co.uk

I hope to build a resource that celebrates this often neglected and indeed threatened typology.

Many of the buildings I have visited have already been subject to a change of use, yet nevertheless retain some or all of their architectural integrity.

I am also interested in the changing identity of the surviving pubs as an important part of our urban communities.

You can add your local local too:
