The Moor Top – Stockport

172 Heaton Moor Road, Heaton Moor, SK4 4DU

“I’ve got a personality crisis and it’s killin’ me.”

So sang the New York Dolls – so to The Moor Top.


Seen here in 1975

A brick, tile and render fortress that has attempted to dress up as Tudorbethan barn and failed.

Surrounded by late Victorian and Edwardian mansions, ashamed of its inherent lack of history.

Currently swathed in hanging baskets and the inevitable coaching lamp, it is undergoing yet another period of transition.

Taken over by the adjacent Damson Restaurant, full refurbishment in 2016 promised.

What will emerge from this incipient, disabused chrysalis?

My money is on those twins of contemporary duplicity Farrow and Ball, blowing their elephant’s breath all over the place, like an unwanted after dinner burp!


I prefer Cannon and Ball – rock on Moor Top!
