ABC Wednesday
P is for Plastic Fantastic


The offices and showroom of Plastic Fantastic is on the corner of Manchester Road and Clark Way.

This was formerly the Red Lion. When I first showed it here in September 2007 the pub was open for business as usual, but by August 2009 it had closed.

At least it has found a new use and not been demolished.

You have had too many pubs close down, but I'm happy to see the building still of use. Plastic Fantastic is a great name too.

Great name for the new business. I'm glad it was reused and not torn down.

The title reminds me of a Jefferson Airplaner song, Plastic Fantastic Lover.
