Polygon, Barlow Road

Pictured above when it was still just about functioning as a pub, the Polygon was a backstreet Boddington's pub on Barlow Road in Levenshulme.  The Polygon is shown at the archives in 1965 with its old neighbour.

The Boddies house is seen here in happier times before a pensioners' day trip to Blackpool in 1982, as shown on the great Levy Boy website [1], but towards the end the Polygon was reportedly very much a local's pub.

The Polygon closed in 2008 and has now been converted to flats, although so many features of the old boozer have been retained, you'd could be mistaken that it was still a public house.  One that has been lost is its amusing and literal sign.
