So here is the first of an occasional series on West Point which is where Manchester Road, Seymour Grove and Upper Chorlton Road meet. Until recently the eastern corner was dominated by the Seymour Hotel which had once been a private residence.
It was a barn of a place and past its best by the time I sometimes went in there. Like so many of these big pubs it no longer attracted enough people and was demolished for a block of flats.
Opposite then as now are the shops.
