Primrose View, 25-27 Ashton Rd, Oldham OL8 1JX
Once there was an OB brewery here, OB – OK?
Fine Lancashire Ales, bought out by Boddington’s.
Closed down by Boddington’s.
Boddington’s was bought out by Interbrew.
Beer can and will eat itself – Boddies the Cream of Manchester, the transubstantiation of Monopoly Capitalism, it rises to the top, as another local brewery and its pubs sink.
Almost without trace.
A poor do in the poorest of towns, the view was never primrose.
The blanked, bricked and tinned windows, have a more than somewhat restricted view of an uncertain future, demolition or redevelopment, planning applied for 2014.
Another new flue, that never arrived.
