ABC Wednesday: A is for Acorn Hill


Old maps of Gee Cross mark the present section of Stockport Road down past the Werneth Hotel as "Acorn Hill".

The house next to The Werneth, lower down the road and opposite the bend, is called "Acorn Villa" and is dated 1879. You can see it on Hyde DP Xtra.

This photograph was taken from the top deck of the new 206 bus route that now runs half-hourly between Gee Cross and Manchester Piccadilly via Haughton Green and Gorton Lane. You can see a slide show of my journey to Manchester on the Geo-trips site.

  6. Adore all those vines creeping over the wall! Creates a gorgous streetscape ambience!
