The Tavern​

Sometime this year during my trip to manchester/liverpool/middle of nowhere!!! I had things I wanted to see and places as a back up if I had time, I had time so decided to take a look around here, I had recently seen a friends video on youtube and the place looked rather beautiful! now I have only explored one pub since I began this weird hobby and I soon understood that much better was out there to look at :lol:
I have tastes and pubs just dont tick the boxes for me, but this one did be it the charm of the place or its history I am unsure, but something about this place lead me to park up outside a supermarket and walk right in, no planning no care in the world, a few people looked but to be honest they soon got in the car and left.

So anyway my second pub! shocker but maybe you can see why I liked it, sure its been kicked about abit and upstairs is no doubt a sex den for teenagers, but lets overlook this and just think "they dont make pubs/taverns like this often" :sentimental:

The origins of this building date back to 1685, since then modernized and changed over the years, opening up as a pub in 1983, it later opened as a club and restaurant in 1985, then on it did well up until 2015 where it closed its doors as a local pub and guest house, probably due to lack of funds and changing of managers so often. It is a listed building and has planning permission for housing... lovely more cardboard houses.

A nice looking pub, it has character and I could enjoy a nice beer there. I like the painting on the ceiling and the large fireplace. Honestly, they cannot bulldoze this one, can they?

Wonderful ceiling with chandelier and some lovely wood left behind, fab find!

Sadly several pubs are closing down daily, either turning into Indian takeaways or Onestops if they are lucky, a lot are just sadly demolished, the Beer Tax isn't helping but its probably more of a cultural thing too, shame.
