George And Dragon, Ashton Under Lyne

A Memory of Ashton

My mum and dad ran the George and Dragon. It was my dad's first pub after leaving the RAF. I'm almost certain we were the last ones in there before it was demolished. I have very vague memories of the place - more about the place and entrance bit more than anything I can really call a vivid memory. We then moved to The Talbot on King Street in Dukinfield (briefly) and then the North Star. This must have been around 72? 73? Not sure - I was about four or five at the time.
