Gransmoor, Ashton Old Road, Openshaw. (c) Alan Winfield with permission.
The Gransmoor was a big Wilsons pub on the corner of Gransmoor Road and Ashton Old Road in Openshaw. In the early 1990s Alan Winfield remembers a garishly decorated and predictably empty Banks's pub . A subsequent name change to CK's didn't appear to improve the old Gransmoor.

CK's closed in the mid-2000s and the old pub has since been used as a second hand appliances shop, as mentioned on the 'A Brief Encounter' blog. This also reminisces about the bands that used to play at the Gransmoor in the 1970s .
