    Default Help with finding post code

    I am looking for the post code of a pub that i think has been demolished.

    The pub in question is the Longsight this was a modern Banks's pub and i think it was on the corner of kirkmanshulme lane and scarcroft road in the longsight area of Manchester.

    I have tried post code finder but had no luck there.

    Thanks Alan

    Al,

    try looking through this list:

    http://manchesterhistory.net/LONGSIGHT/PUBS/pubs.html

    The postcode will be somewhere in the region of M12 4xx , possibly M12 4UH

    Maybe somewhere near M12 4TF, there's a demolition site opposite the leisure centre which may have been a pub or part of the Belle Vue Pleasure Gardens etc. I think the leisure centre is built on the site of the dog track.

    This is a cracking website on the pubs of the area, go back a stage to here for the fascinating history of the area. ROBCamra might like the Rochdale page.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    I've seen it before (sorry) and was struck about how wrong or omitted a lot of it is.

    No mention of Bill Oddie, Andy Kershaw, Liz Kershaw, Ray Hatton etc who were all born here.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
