Looking over Woodend Allotments


Many of the allotments on the side of Woodend Lane have been abandoned (mainly due to the work of vandals) and some of the trees have been felled. Now a view is afforded across the valley of the Gower Hey Brook. Some allotments half-way down the valley are still maintained. Werneth Low can be seen on the horizon.

Compare with the view in April 2011 and the one from the opposite direction about a century ago.

There is another view of the allotments on Hyde DP Xtra.

  1. I like this shot - such a jumble of things and a fine composition. I also like the concept of allotments.

  9. It's such a shame! How nice it would be for the owners to work these allotments again!

  10. What a great shot of a jumbled mess of lumber! It is a shame to see properties abandoned and destroyed, but it does make for interesting photos!
