Manchester Road, Heaton Norris, Stockport. SK4 1TN
In the 1960’s you were built as an estate pub by Boddington’s to serve the new housing developments at the top of Lancashire Hill, two large rooms separated by the bar.
You were transformed into the Cosmopolitan and latterly the Venue.
Applications were made for change of use to a takeaway and a carwash.
Neither would take, or wash.
In March 2009 you closed your doors to the drinker forever.
Like a seriously unwanted child you were snapped once and only once it seems.
Prior to being boarded up and out.
Then reinvented as luxury apartments.
I’ve belatedly redressed your absence from presence, here’s my small gift to you.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Three Crowns, take a bow.
