Zaf’s Mini Market – 101 Butler St – Miles Platting – Manchester – M4 7JH

28 Aug

Zaf's Mini Market from Butler Street shortly before demolition in 2011.

Zaf’s Mini Market was a typical corner shop and sited at the corner of Butler Street and Holland Street, surrounding by housing which for the vast majority was built in the early 1980s. It was a well used community resource and there has been no reason yet put forward for why it was bulldozed in 2011.

The rendered external brickwork made it hard to give an exact date the building was built, although we can be sure that the building survived all the other previous mass demolitions in Miles Platting and so we can say it was certainly pre-war and built before 1940.

It is quite possible the building was pre-1900, so a very rare architectural gem in this area, since very few examples of this period still stand in Miles Platting, with the majority of the buildings built in the 1970s and 1980s. It may well have been previously two separate terrace properties and knocked into one at a later date.
