But sadly not me.
I can’t even claim that I have passed it that often which just shows how even after 45 years living here I tend to stick to those parts of the twin cities which are the most familiar.
Nor I guess am I alone in that.
Now I have no idea what will become of the pub and have yet to check out planning applications for this bit of Salford.
For now I shall just reflect on the sorry state of the building and wonder if anyone has pictures or stories of the Blackfriar in happier times.
