George And Dragon , Market Square - a Memory of Ashton.

My parents ran the George and Dragon. I can just about remember the place, but I do remember my brother and I sitting in a paddling pool aged 5 and 1 throwing water over the balcony. Our misfortune was it was over the front door.

The old pub seemed huge to me then, I remember learning to cycle in the bar. I went to school nearby(?) and I had to cross a cobbled street with tram tracks. Any Help with names? My first memory of nursery school was being made to have a sleep in camp beds in the afternoon.

Does anyone know where the materinity/nursing home was in Hyde as I was born there in 1955. I don't know anymore about where I was born but would like some more details.
