As it was 7 or 8 years ago.....
.....and 3 weeks ago.

Hyde Pubs 1975 (23)









Like the Woodman this is another pub of which all trace has been totally obliterated by the M67 Motorway. The map in Paul Taylor's History of the Pubs of Hyde and District puts it on the left hand side of Grafton Street just beyond Pitt Street and immediately before the junction with Newton Street.
This is a photograph taken at the end of what's left of Grafton Street which now does a 90 degree turn into Pitt Street on the other side of the Portman Motors building on the right. The Highland Laddie would have been somewhere amongst the trees immediately behind the car on the left.

Hyde Pubs 1975 (22)









Seven or eight years ago it looked a bit run down.....
.....but it looks nice and spruce now.

Hyde Pubs 1975 (20)








Now derelict and difficult to spot when you're driving past unless you know exactly where it is.....

.....and what it looks like.

Hyde Pubs 1975 (19)











This is a photo of the pub some 7 or 8 years ago.
This was taken a couple of weeks ago, and it's not changed very much - except that it no longer appears to be 'Your Friendly Local'.
