Somewhat akin to a more than somewhat neglected child, there only appears to be one tiny photograph of your younger self.
Not a million miles away from you space age cousin in Miles Platting.
In your first incarnation as an Inn – a Holts tied pub in an up and coming area, the detritus of the earlier Victorian era having been cleared away.
And a brave new world assembled in the 1960s.
I can find no reference online regarding your upbringing, later years or final demise – you passed it seems without trace.
You had a later flowering as an Islamic Centre, as did full many other an estate pub.
Though this too was short-lived as the Al-Falah moved on up the road.
Where sadly a suspected arson attack was made.
So now you stand forlorn, all alone and unloved – surrounded and bound by chipboard and railings, as nature reclaims your site.
Was there ever a former glory, an untold story or two?
