    The Explore.........

    Following some information, and with a bit of time to spare decided to take a peek at the aforementioned, whilst the explore was a bit of a walk round, you can certainly tell it had recently been done over by the metal fairies :mad

    A Bit of History.......

    The privately owned Moorcock Inn Hotel and Restaurant, has closed and reopened a number of times under different management over the past 40 years. It finally shut its doors for the last time near the end of 2010.

    In 1975 it was put into liquidation after losses of £97,500 were revealed. Later that year, the building was gutted by fire, but was then fully restored and re-opened in 1977. Plans were submitted to turn the site into a development of luxury flats, but after a number of years of wrangling, the plans were thrown out and the hotel became known for fruit machines and discos.

    In 1984 it re-opened as a quality venue offering fine cuisine and functions. In 1995, permission was granted for 14 new bedrooms and a conference centre.

    The future of the once popular country hotel hangs in the balance after plans to knock it down and build three houses were re-submitted.

    Council’s planning committee turned down proposals to demolish it in November last year, saying the size of the houses did not meet local need and were out of keeping with the rural area.

    On with the pics........pre-warning, apologies for the amount of photos ;)

    Remember the place well, that was the place to be in the 80's in Littleborough, the only late night spot around at the time without going into Rochdale. Brought back some great memories thanks :thumb
