Q is for Queen Inn, Ashton under Lyne
I first noticed the Queen Inn at Ashton under Lyne earlier this year. I noted that it was "Under New Management" and it looked in good order.
I was especially impressed by this plaster-work portrait of the Queen. I don't know the technical term for it.
Some weeks ago I was again in Ashton and was sad to see it boarded and shuttered up. I've discovered it was listed as being a gay-friendly bar. I trust that wasn't the reason for its closure. It is up for sale at £120,000 + VAT.
