The Flying Fish

A view taken in the 1960's. Apart from the colour scheme, not much has changed.

I always liked the blue paint! Andy, Editor

Comments about this page

The Fish (or the Kicking Donkey as it was affectionally known) was my local pub for around ten years when I lived in Denton. Martin Watts was the landlord at this time, with his wife Sylvia, both sadly departed, Martin was a bit of a curmudgeon but Sylv was one of the nicest people I have ever met.. It was a great local and was the centre for many activities including the annual pram race for charity. I played darts for one of their teams and captained it for a while. It's very low lying and often flooded during times of heavy rainfall. I had my Stag night there and ended up being stripped naked and given the bumps in the graveyard next door, happy days.
