Didn't Kris Radlinski own it at one point?

I think the property is owned by the Bithell family scrap metal people on Wigan Lane. Anyway Mrs Bithell rented it out but wanted the couple who rented it to keep repairs up, this did not prove cost effective as i think amongst all they did it eventually needed a new roof.

Is going to open up as a fine dining restraunt.

Fine dining, eh.?

Large white plate, a small serving of food in middle of the plate with a 'drizzle' on the empty bits to make it worth eating.

They'd may as well change the name to 'The Bel-End' !
