A historic pub in Manchester is calling time after nearly three centuries of serving ale.
A retail complex will be built on the site of the Mile House
The Mile House, at North Street, off Cheetham Hill Road, is being demolished to make way for a modern development.
The pub first opened 271 years ago, but will now be replaced with a warehouse and retail complex.
Owners Tommy and Christine Gaffney have been running the Mile House for 16 years.
Mr Gaffney's work for the Manchester Dublin Association has drawn in celebrities who have performed at the nearby Irish club including comedian Ricky Tomlinson and Coronation Street stars.
The pub has also served more than a dozen mayors of Manchester and Dublin.
It is a far cry from its past history which included a makeshift morgue in the front room.
Mr Gaffney said: "There is a lot of history in these walls and it is a shame to think that it's going for good."
