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.
We have now been viewed in 168 Countries by over 975,238 unique visitors.... great team work... and fantastic support by so many of you.
A place of interest for Hydonians.

Tom, Dave, Paul and I would like to say thank you to everyone for contributing to this blog in some small way - even if that means just reading it! It's been more of a success than we could ever have dreamt of and that's all down to you ! It was our intention to get Hyde "on the record" as it were and it seems to be heading in the right direction. We are very proud of Hyde and would like it's history to live on!
