Midland, Hyde Road, Belle Vue. (c) Gary Taylor at manmates.co.uk .
The Midland was both a station hotel - being opposite Belle Vue Station - and place for visitors to the Pleasure Gardens to visit for refreshments or accommodation. It was also a Belle Vue Brewery outlet . We used to park at the Midland in the late '80s, early '90s when watching the Aces speedway team at Kirkmanshulme Lane, after their Hyde Road stadium was demolished.

I'm not sure I was ever dragged inside the big old pub though. The Midland was on the corner of Glencastle Road (now disused) and Hyde Road but was demolished in 2002  or 2003  to be replaced by very little.
