Admiral, Butler Street

Admiral, Butler Street (c) panoramio.

The Admiral on Butler Street just off Oldham Road was demolished a couple of years ago and was a pub we passed on many occasions but never made the plunge.  A typically uninviting looking estate pub, it was derelict for a few years, but is still shown as inhabited (though boarded up) on googlemaps.

The Admiral had a reputation as a rough boozer full of 'characters' and strippers were a regular feature as recently as the late 1990s.  It's a shame that these estate pubs are lost as communities are either literally forced out due to redevelopment, or at the very least, priced out of drinking in pubs.
