Greyhound / Game Bird, Ladybridge Road

Greyhound, Ladybridge Road, Cheadle Hulme, 1998. (c) Alan Winfield with permission.

The Greyhound, shown above in 1998, was a classic inter-wars estate pub, formerly known as the Game Bird, on the corner of Councillor Lane and Ladybridge Road in Cheadle Hulme.

At No.169 Ladybridge Road, it closed in June 2010, and although was briefly hawked around for sale for alternative use, was demolished in October later that year [2].

The Greyhound was ale-free for a number of years but offered Tetley cask towards the end, and had an upstairs function room.

While the above two images are from 2008, fast-forward to 2012 and the Greyhound is no more.  Last I heard there was an application for a Morrison's 'M' store for the site [4].
