The Manor House was at the bottom of Camp Street, opposite what is now Tameside Council office entrance. There was a Railway pub on Cowhill Lane, just before the railway bridge.

Wow i must do more research re The Witchwood, I thought that was a sucess story. We went to the Guzzling Goose on Sunday afternoon, the place was packed,we loved it (in fact angie left me in there,being a responsible parent  :) )  I was still home for half eight though,im a good lad,i am  ;D

My Niece goes in the Witch Wood regular I was talking to her on Sunday and she mentioned she still goes never said it was closing. I know there is to be a new college in area for business studies 3 stories with a cafe on ground floor for anyone to go in for a drink and something to eat  I have seen the plans and the pub didn't look affected.

The Witchwood has a forum similar to this one. Perhaps someone could register - find out the latest 'goss'!   :o

I had a look at it yesterday , it is closed at the moment, one theory is new management coming in , and there is a person who bought tickets for an upcoming gig there , who is rightfully worried  :-X

havent been in the witchwood for a while. am sure the last group saw there was wild turkey and that was ages ago cos whenever look there's just tribute bands on. husbands nephew darren poyzer used to book all the groups and we had some good nights there including man and wishbone ash. shame after all publicity before if it shuts now. think spread eagle reunion is at turnpike saturday!!!!

Seconds out round two at the turnpike then ( just like most weekends  ;D )
Darren is a friend of mine,since childhood,we used to be in a band together in the mid 80's, he was the keyboard player , i was the sound engineer, that was before he branched off into poetry  :)

It is lydia  ;D  The name rings a bell , yes i do know the moon & sixpence in glossop, it's a nice pub,with loads of live music all the time. Its on Henry St, where the bus station is , opposite the side of the Co-op.

During the 40s I recollect there were more than thirty pubs between St Michaels' Square and the end of Stamford St including Old St. In fact there were at least 10 pubs in shouting distance of the Palais
Is my old local "Miners Arms at Montague Rd and Mossley Rd still in existence??
The publican was named Sid... I must have played hundreds of games of dominoes in the tap room and bet on the horses Saturday lunchtime.
