Former Brown Cow, Butler Street, Miles Platting. (c) Google 2012. Click for Larger Map.
Another of Miles Platting's modern estate pubs to fall to further redevelopment, the Brown Cow stood on Butler Street on the corner with Woodward Street. Before it was closed it was described as a boisterous two-roomed Wilson's house , and Alan Winfield captured it in 1992 at Pubs Galore. The Brown Cow is seen here in 1964 with its off-licence attached, four years after it opened, replacing the original Brown Cow which had stood here since at least the 1820s. The Brown Cow is these days fenced off having been converted to flats.
