Albion Street was a street that ran across from Henry Street to Great Norbury Street. It was a street typical to most of Hyde that comprised of two up/two down terraced housing. It was demolished circa 1992 to make way for a green play area and garden for use of the local housing which hasn't much in the way of open space.
