The Lad's Rubble

This is all that is left of Hyde Lad's Club. Opened in 1930 by Prince Henry, third son of George V.

The Club was on Beeley Street - see photos on Hyde Cheshire.

In the earlier 1990s it was demolished to make way for a car park - see photos of the demolition on Hyde Cheshire.

All that was left was a memorial stone - see our post from September 2007 to see it, together with an account of its history.

Sometime on Tuesday night the memorial was reduced to rubble. Accident, vandalism, weather decay or what is not known.

I was told by two council workers whom I saw yesterday that although the plaque has been cracked the rubble is going to be taken away for restoration and should be back in place sometime next week.
