This Miles Platting estate pub sat on the corner of Varley Street and Sandal Street, just off Bradford Road, in a now decimated part of north-east Manchester. The side of the pub is shown here partly in 1967 in happier and busier times for 'The Platting', as the area is known locally. The area is actually named after a platting, or bridge / culvert, which once crossed the old road into Manchester near here. The Hat & Feathers building still stands according to googlemaps and has been used as a family charity base for some time until they moved out in 2008 . Another of Manchester's unloved estate pubs; gone and almost forgotten.
