New Inn


The New Inn on the A57 at Hattersley.

How new?

Well I'm told it dates back to the 1600s and was known as a highwayman's inn. There are tales of it being haunted by a ghost named Mary.

In the background is Wardlebrook Avenue on Hattersley. The house where Ian and Myra did their nefarious deeds has thankfully been long demolished.

Ah, The New Inn...my old "haunt"!! I lived next door to this pub for almost 20 years. My bedroom used to overlook the beer garden and many a time I watched the young Ricky & Matt Hatton brothers playing there, as their parents were the Landlord and Landlady. Thanks Gerald

Age is relative. There is a New River that is thought to be the oldest in North America. The Inn looks well kept after 400 years! I'm enjoying your posts from around Hyde.

Looks a lovely old inn, Gerald and I'm glad to hear the other place has been demolished.

I love hauntings! How long has Mary been in residence?

A place with grim history. Nice shot though.

I wonder how they know the ghost is called Mary. Maybe someone asked her name!
