This grim-looking Beswick estate pub closed down after City moved into the City of Manchester Stadium and was a popular match day venue. Sadly, Whitbread's Clock Face was pulled down as it wasn't really in keeping with the pleasant new houses built in the lower part of Beswick just north of Ashton Old Road. Nothing has been built in its place though. Alan Winfield has published a photo of the Clock Face at Pubs Galore .
