The Bricklayers Arms Public House, bought by developers, Nadia Homes from Doncaster who let the building rot and Manchester City Councils solution was to either demolish it or repair it. Neither parties taking into account what the community wants to see happen to this historic and characterful building, which was built with respect to it’s surroundings and the built environment and the communities it was going to serve. Considerations neither parties respect or consider.
From between April 2008 and August 2010, the owners and Manchester City Council have allowed damage to roof progress, open to the elements and the eventual arson attack which led to further destruction of the historical asset.
Sadly since this time, the historic public house has since been demolished.
