Wellington, Hyde Road

Former location of Wellington, Hyde Road, Ardwick. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.

The Wellington was a Chesters pub that once graced this corner at the very end of Hyde Road, opposite where Fort Ardwick flats used to stand.  Alan Winfield snapped the Wellington Hotel as a Chesters house on a visit almost 20 years ago in July 1992 [1], and it's shown in 1958 as a Threlfalls house when Hyde Road was a proper thoroughfare, lined with shops, houses and pubs.  The Wellington was pulled down, probably some time in the mid-'90s, as I recall it when we used to pop in the Star, and as is usual, nothing has been built in its place.  While Fort Ardwick [2] in front is long gone, the factory behind, which would also have supplied custom for the Wellington, remains unchanged in the last two decades.
