Hallbottom Gate Inn 2010


These images of the Hallbottom Gate Inn on Talbot Road, Newton were taken this week by Tom Wigley and are used here with kind permission.


The pub has seen a large turnover of landlords in the last 25 years and is now closed, derelict inside and expected to be demolished.


In the 90s it was a popular venue for classic rock groups and in June 1990 was host to the American band Par Avion. Photos of the inside of the pub taken at their gig and showing the cheering fans can be found on Old Hyde.


Other photos of the pub can be found on Tom and Nancy's new blog Hyde Cheshire

  1. Thankyou for the mention Gerald, what a shame that such a pub as this can fall by the way side. This pub as you knowis surrounded by housing yet it struggled to make a worth while income. When I first moved to Newton it served an excellent pint of 'Stones' bitter.
