About the New Lord Clyde and some history

A charming little country pub in Kerridge, on the edge of Bollington

Under new ownership

The Lord Clyde has been under new ownership since September 2017, Landlady Sue Johnson has transformed the pub back to a real pub again with a good range of real ales and serving decent portions of home cooked food - no more gastro nonsense here! The original Lord Clyde Inn was formed from 2 weavers stone cottages in 1843. At this moment we don't know any more history about the pub and welcome any knowledge from local historians.

Who is Lord Clyde

Field Marshal Colin Campbell, 1st Baron Clyde, GCB, KCSI (20 October 1792 – 14 August 1863), was a British Army officer. After serving in the Peninsular War and the War of 1812, he commanded the 98th Regiment of Foot during the First Opium War and then commanded a brigade during the Second Anglo-Sikh War. He went on to command the Highland Brigade at the Battle of Alma and with his "thin red line of Highlanders" he repulsed the Russian attack on Balaclava during the Crimean War. At an early stage of the Indian Mutiny, he became Commander-in-Chief, India and, in that role, he relieved and then evacuated Lucknow and, after attacking and decisively defeating Tatya Tope at the Second Battle of Cawnpore, captured Lucknow again. Whilst still commander-in-chief he dealt with the 'White Mutiny' among East India Company troops, and organised the army sent east in the Second Opium War.
