The Steamhouse, Urmston
Come over to Urmston on Thursday 23rd July, when Trafford & Hulme Branch will be presenting their Pub of the Season Award for Summer 2009 to The Steamhouse at Urmston railway station (8 p.m. onwards).
What a transformation! For fifteen years Urmston’s original station building lay derelict after a modern ticket office was built on the opposite line of the line. It was succumbing to the ravages of flood, fire and tempest, not to mention vandalism. To locals it seemed it would soon have to be demolished.
