This wonderfully-grim '70s estate pub is still in use today as a church - apparently the Good News Assembly Pentecostal Church, although when the pub first closed, it became St George's Church . The Lowry was built by Whitbread in 1977 as the estate pub for the new houses on Langley Road South when Whit Lane was replaced. In 1986, Whitbread's Delamere Inns division kitted the Lowry out with prints of the aforementioned Salford artist, but by 1991 - a year after the above photo was taken - it had closed for good.
