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.

Ripped the heart out of that area, I can't bring the Laddie to mind, but have heard many tales.. Hyde Homing Society met there before moving to the Shepherds Club further up the road.
