George Street

There is hardly anything left to remind one of this memorial, or what it looked like. The area has been completely redeveloped and the M67 motorway, constructed in the mid to late 1970’s runs where George Street was once stood.

Many of the men commemorated would have been from the Donneybrook area, once the toughest part of Hyde, which was demolished in late 1930s.

Apparently, the memorial stood outside the Star public house which, before redevelopment, was next to the Astoria bingo hall (still standing) then the Scala cinema. Before the war Mr and Mrs Lockwood regularly tended it, they were licensee’s of the star.
