Cheshire Cheese (2)


When I showed you the Cheshire Cheese in Gee Cross and said it was one of three in the town, you were all gagging to see the other two.

Well here is the one on Market Street, Hyde opposite the end of Union Street.

You could do a series of pubs with food names, I wonder if there is a pub named after Baked Beans.

Gereld, this was a pub that I spent a lot more time in than I should. It was a Boddington's Beer pub in the 70s, it might still be for all I know.
The landlady was called Val Cuthbert, and alas was one of Dr. Harold Shipman's victims. I know that people say that beer goes to peoples head, well in my case it did. I have a Boddingtons Beer Barrel with the words Cheshire Cheese Hyde, and the names Jim and Val tattoo'd on the top of my nappers. And folk can't understand why I don't drink much anymore. :)

Gereld I have a book somewhere in the house with the history of Hyde pubs past and present. I'll dig it out for you to have a look at.
