Fallowfield Hotel, Wilbraham Road

Fallowfield Hotel, Wilbraham Road, Fallowfield, 1970. (c) tedknott3 at flickr.

This is one old Maine Road boozer I don't recall, though I suspect this is the pub that's been bothering me for years.  There's always one prematch boozer I couldn't place, that we went in once in the early '90s having parked in a strange place for some reason.  It must have been the Fallowfield.  The above scan is from the  locally well-knownTed Knott (Droylsden), and the same photo of the Wilsons house from 1970 is at the archives with one from 1973.  Today, the pub has been flattened and replaced by new build flats, although is an identical building to the still standing priest's house on the other side of St Kentigerns Social Club.
