Blackstock, Upper Brook Street

The Blackstock was a huge, multi-roomed boozer on the corner of Upper Brook Street and Blackstock Street.  These days the pub operates as a computer shop, but as recently as the 1990s it was a Whitbread-tied house offering a couple of real ales [1].

Despite being in a relatively under-pubbed area, close to thousands of students and hospital works, as well as the Ardwick and Chorlton-on-Medlock estates, the Blackstock has been closed for a over a decade.  At least the building has found a use, unlike the listed yet rotting Plymouth Grove nearby.  There is a photo of the Blackstock by Alan Winfield at Pubs Galore [1].
