Ardwick Empire, Coverdale Crescent

Ardwick Empire, Coverdale Crescent, Ardwick. (c) Old Maps [1].

The Ardwick Empire was an estate pub on Fort Ardwick, those monstrous brown flats at the bottom of Hyde Road, which were pulled down in the late 1980s. The Ardwick Empire stood on Coverdale Crescent, next to the Coverdale Christian Church (an "estate church"), and must have been viewable from Hyde Road, though I don't remember it.

Unlike its neighbouring estate pub, the Grey Mare, the Ardwick Empire wasn't well-photographed, and the usual places where archival photos are stored or shared have returned blanks. Does anyone remember the Ardwick Empire, and even better, does anyone have a photo of this lost boozer?
