The Huntington – Manchester

Northmoor Road/Stanley Grove, Longsight, M12 5RT.


In the midst of multicultural Longsight is a fine, well maintained and used boozer, a reminder of the area’s Irish heritage, part of the first wave of Nineteenth Century immigration to Manchester.

A busy mix of traditional brick and tile, one and two storey construction, regular square windows and hard angular volumes.

I was amused by the innovative, overarching supermarket trolley smoking shelters.

A notable survivor in an area now short on local locals.
