Swan, Hamerton Road

Swan, Hamerton Road, Collyhurst. (c) Caldecotte Group.

This Swan, a former Greenalls house tucked away off Rochdale Road in Collyhurst, closed in 2012.  This leaves Collyhurst almost pub-free district, save for the Valley estate pub and the Parkland, which is more of a residential hotel these days.

The pub stands on Hamerton Road on the corner with , these days a dead end.  The Swan's life also appears to be at a dead end as it's up for sale for just GBP150,000 [1], with apparently little hope of reopening as a boozer.

  1. My Mum & Dad were the landlord & landlady here 1971 to 1982. It was then a willsons. Dad made this one of the best pubs in the are at that time. Very local to police station, many stories. The Dog even found a dead body at the back of the pub wrapped in a carpet. Such a shame it's now empty of life.
