Technical School and Library

Hyde Technical School and Free Library opened in 1897 replacing the former Mechanics Institute.

In recent years the building was shared between the library and Tameside College but the college has moved out and the library has been extensively refurbished.

The coloured version of this photograph can be seen on Geograph.

Information on the Mechanics Institute can be found on Old Hyde.

  2. It is a beautiful building in its own right... Hyde as lost a few I am happy to say the future of this building seems to be bright.

  3. A handsome, historic building with some great architectural details!
