It must be a few years now since the Station Chippy under the Piccadilly Gardens hotel closed for the final time. It was a shame – it was easily Manchester’s finest chip establishment. No doubt it was due to the redevelopment of the entire building. It has remained there, visible for all to see for what seems like an age until a few months ago. Now it is no longer visible at all, it is all partitioned off whilst every trace of it is removed to make space for some new development.
