Memories – North Manchester CAMRA
28th April this year will be the 50th anniversary of “Black Sunday”, when eight pubs in the Ellor Street area were scheduled to close (one actually floundered on for a few weeks, but its fate was sealed.)

The fact that some long-serving licensees endured to the end reflects the community spirit that the pubs helped to keep alive.
