ABC Wednesday: F is for the
The Friendship Tavern is on Hyde Road, Gorton, Manchester on the corner of Friendship Avenue.
Its architectural style harks back to the Victorian period although the light-coloured stonework would have originally looked very dark. The redbrick sections would be the result of early 20th century renovations. I haven't been able to find out anything about the history of the pub so this is mostly conjecture.
This view shows how it is set alongside the normally busy A57 (I managed to pick a brief quiet moment on a Monday mid-morning to take these photographs) by the Reddish turnoff opposite Debdale Park.
