Apollo, Varley Street

Apollo, Varley Street, Miles Platting. (c) Google 2011 - View Larger Map.

Another of Miles Platting's estate pubs to close, the Apollo only closed in 2010 but looks unlikely to reopen any time soon.  It is situated on Varley Street at the Oldham Road end, on the corner of Farnbrough Road in the shadow of a high-rise.  Like many of Manchester's inner city estate pubs, the Apollo has been blighted by trouble and gangs over the years, but this summer an odd crime was reported at the pub - some enterprising young thief nicked the paving stones from out the front [1].  There is a picture of the boarded up Apollo at the Manchester Evening News / North West Advertiser site.
