The Lantern was a classic Wythenshawe estate pub built by Greenall Whitley's in the 1960s on Hall Lane in Baguley.

The Lantern was probably demolished in the late '90s, but in the absence of much history, here are some great internal photos.

On the site of the old Lantern is this block of grim new-builds called Lantern Court opposite Baguley Hall.

  1. The lantern was burnt down, probably arson or insurance job?
