The Jockey Pub from TV's Shameless, real name the Wellington Inn. Shameless is my favorite TV program with the antics of the Chatsworth Estate denziens making for compulsive viewing. We particularly love the character of Frank played brilliantly by David Threlfall and the scriptwritting by Paul Abbott is always fantastic. The series was originaly filmed on this real estate in Gorton. Later the filming moved to a purpose built set in Manchester and I have taken aerial photographs of both Shameless locations. Since this photograph was taken, the entire estate has been demolished and all the houses , tower blocks and pub are gone. The estate was built around 1972 and demolished around 2013. Everything you see in the photo is now gone and also the TV set has been demolished.
