Swan, Oldham Road

This large advertising hoarding on Oldham Road in Miles Platting marks the spot of the lost Swan pub.  It is shown here at Pubs Galore at a Belhaven house in 1993 and Alan Winfield reported that the Swan served Tetley's, albeit in a rather depressing environment [1].  The Swan was near to Miles Platting Railway Station which closed in 1995, probably around the time of the pub.  All signs of the station have been removed from the area, although some of the station awning can now be seen on the East Lancs Railway at Rambsottom [2].
