Two Benches without a Tree


These two benches can be found at the corner of Union Street and Market Street.

When they first appeared in January 2009 there was a tree between them - see my post from Hyde Daily Photo Vol. 1.

Let's Talk Tripe again


When Jack Curvis - who was featured in 2006 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol.1 - retired a few years ago his tripe stall on Hyde Indoor Market was taken over by Lyndon Boot who continues to sell traditional tripe and cow heel as well as rag puddings, a range of low fat sausages and other delicacies.

A recent addition is a sculpture of a bull which has been firmly fixed above the stall.

Hyde Nursing and Care Centre


Hyde Nursing and Care Centre operated by Meridian Healthcare Ltd is built on the site of Wards 1-3 of the former Hyde Hospital.

According to their website they provide general nursing care and nursing dementia (EMI Nursing) care for older people. Hyde Nursing Home is also the home to an intermediate care service called Grange View. Grange View services are provided by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust. The Pennine Care team is made up of healthcare assistants, nurses and therapists who will help patients to recover and regain their independence following a hospital stay. This will include patients who have a long term condition, those who need help with dressings and wound care and people with mobility problems.

Local people generally continue to refer to Grange View as Hyde Hospital.

The Weekend in Black and White: Carrfield Mill Pond from Newton Street


A peek through the trees on Newton Street at the site of the former Carrfield Mill complex which has been completely demolished now.

In the centre is one of the mill ponds that supplied water and acted as a reservoir to be used in the case of fire.

See a view of the mill pond from Clark Way on Hyde DP Xtra.
