The Lord Nelson on Newton Street is no more. Few tears will be shed for the loss of a public house that barely lived up to the name in its final few decades, but I'm sure some of the Ancoats locals were fond of the place. Indeed, as we snapped it mid-demolition we noticed a few people had scrawled messages on the pub's crumbling walls condemning the decision to pull down what was a structurally sound and rather impressive building. This little unheralded piece of Manchester history will no doubt be replaced by badly constructed flats or nondescript offices. Lord Nelson, RIP.
