Recording the slow, sad death of the British pub
Once the town’s smartest hotel, it has been derelict since 1998 and is now scheduled for demolition. Note the illuminated neon sign just below the roofline.
A double-fronted pub on a side street just west of the town centre, which I understand is soon to be reopened.
A substantial stone-built inter-wars pub on the main Rochdale road to the west of the town, still displaying Bass livery.
