Halfway House, Middleton Road, Crumpsall. (c) Alan Winfield with permission.
The Halfway House at No.2 Middleton Road at the junction with Bury Old Road and Leicester Road closed in the late 2000s and is now in use as Azmirana Solicitors office, retaining some of the old pub signage. The Halfway House has its upper half decked out in mock Tudor, as seen in 1958 and 1971 as a Cornbrook house and 1985 as a Bass house.
An original Half Way House stood here, as seen in this 1927 photo taken on Bury Old Road. Apparently it was at this original Half Way House that notorious burglar and murderer, Charles Peace, was captured .
