Here’s a picture of the former Adswood Hotel in Stockport, which was recently closed by Robinson’s brewery and was “tinned up” only yesterday. The second picture is a screen grab from Google StreetView showing it as it was in 2012. It was the starting point of one of the regular CAMRA pub crawls and in the past has been used for CAMRA branch meetings. As you can see, it’s a sizeable pub with an attractive cobbled forecourt and a surprisingly large beer garden at the rear.
Although it’s in the middle of a large area of mainly terraced housing with no other pubs nearby I’d be very surprised if it ever reopened as a pub. If you’re interested, I’m sure Robinson’s will be happy to talk to you – they won’t be applying a restrictive covenant. Don’t all rush at once, now.
This was one of the three at-risk pubs within a mile of the town centre I referred to in this post (http://pubcurmudgeon.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/culling-stragglers.html) from last year.
