Allan have you been on a pub crawl,?

It is really sad to see all of these pubs closing down. This looks as if it would have been a good one.

....Mick, your "Green Door" post has had me humming all week! Can't get it out of my head, waking or sleeping!

And another one for the Junk food outlet, and more leaflets pushed through our letter boxes.

Don't quite know where this photo was taken Alan, but it sure aint Hindley Green. The Geography is all wrong.The left hand side of the door does not have a main road running down the side of it.It has a butty shop and the Little Chippy.
