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.
