Soap Box / Newton House, Culcheth Lane

The Soap Box on Culcheth Lane in Newton Heath has been closed for a number of years now, deteriorating badly, as seen by comparing these two photos, a couple of years apart.

Previously called the Newton House as a Marston's pub, the odd three- and two-storey boozer actually has its entrance around the side so from most angles the way in was tough to fathom.

The Soap Box has been up for sale at ever-dwindling pirces (£125,00 above; less than £100k last year).
