The (former) Apethorn on Knott Lane

Knott Lane is ancient route connecting Gee Cross with Knott Fold.

In modern times the Cheetham Fold estate has been built around it, including The Apethorn public house.

Despite being a popular local pub and a music venue, it was closed in January 2015 by its then owners, Enterprise Inns, and has been sold over the head of the pub manager.

See how it looked in 2009 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol.1.

Newton Street

Newton Street was originally the A627 via Flowery Field to Ashton-under-Lyne and Dukinfield Road on the left was the B6170 taking a more direct though Dukinfield to Ashton. In the 1960s the two roads swapped numbers.

Behind the wall a 7 acre industrial and office development site is now for sale. See how it looked when the Ashton Brothers' mill complex, Carrfield Mill, Bayleyfield Mill and Balaclava Mill, was extant on Old Hyde.

Take a peek behind the fence at the demolition site on Hyde Daily Photo.
