Chapman Arms – Hattersley

Stockport Road, Hattersley, Hyde SK14 3QF

Another *overspill* amenity that bit the dust.

Empty drip trays filled with evaporated tears.

Another of Robinson’s Estate, to exit yet another estate.

The Chapman Arms stood by the bypass – passersby no longer stopping by.

The darkened windows and doors sheeted with blank plastic, reflect a distorted, sadly spiralling view of an uncaring world.

Desperately attempting to hang on to some sense of itself, as a shop, take away or café – a series of doomed alter-egos failed to ensure sufficient cash, through a dormant silent till.

Talk is of flat conversion or flattening.

No future.
