Flooded Valley Reflections


The deep valley between Gower Road and St George's Church through which flows the Gower Hey Brook is usually a muddy swamp. The last time I passed that way the valley was flooded and the water reflected back the bare wintry trees.

Broomstair Bridge from under the M67


Yesterday I showed you the boundary signs on the parapet of Broomstair Bridge.

Today's view is of the bridge from underneath the M67 motorway bridge.

See the view in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

Weekend reflections in the River Tame in Black & White.


Taken from Lovers Lane across the river Tame to Jet Amber Fields. The river is the boundary between Hyde (Cheshire) and Denton (Lancashire) although both now come under the local authority known as Tameside Metropolitan Borough.

See the original photograph and read more about the river on Geograph.

Godley Brook by Hoviley



I first showed the weir on the Godley Brook from the entrance to the ABC Wax premises in May 2007 and then again in March 2009 when there was a supermarket trolley below the weir.

It looked a bit different in September 2009 and in July 2011.

On the right is the M67 motorway.

The Weekend in Black & White: Godley Brook at Godley Hill



Viewed looking upstream from the footbridge below Godley Hill War Memorial.

From here it is about three miles downstream to the view I showed you a month ago from Newton Street.

Track off Halton Street

The track off Halton Street leads to Bonehill Dam.

The Godley Brook flows through the valley on the right.

Note: I'll be away in St Annes all this week and probably without internet access so will not be tweeting.

I've scheduled a post each day to go live at midnight BST and Julie Storry of Sydney Eye will be posting a notice to the CDPB Facebook page which is also where CDPB members can go to vote for September's theme day.

Shadow Shot Sunday: Brookbank Folly Castle


The castellated folly castle overlooking Godley Brook lies in the back garden of Brookbank House. The house was built in 1837 by Joseph Hibbert, the sixth of fourteen children of Randal Hibbert. The Hibbert family of Godley played an important part in the history of Hyde and its neighborhood, figuring amongst the pioneers of the cotton industry.

The castle folly was probably built around the mid part of the 19th century. In the mid-1990s there were plans by the then owners to restore the building and open it up to the public. See Hyde Cheshire.

Now it belongs to the Brookbank Day Nursery and public access to the folly is not permitted. It can however be viewed from this footpath on the North side of the Godley Brook.

Another view of the folly can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra and a larger monochrome view can be seen on my photoblog sithenah.

Shadows in Gower Hey Woods


Here is where Gower Hey Brook disappears under a culvert near Swains Valley. It eventually emerges on the far side of Dowson Road.

See how it looked in Autumn 2009.

Weekend Reflections: Godley Brook by ABC Wax


More reflections in Godley Brook but today about a mile further West from the ones I showed you last week.

Here the stream is channeled between the ABC Wax textile factory and Hoviley Brow.

Compare it with the same scene in September 2009. What changes can you see?

Weekend Reflections: Godley Brook


Reflections in Godley Brook taken from the little bridge that crosses the stream near to its confluence with Werneth Brook not far from Brookbank Nursery.

You can look back towards the little bridge on Hyde DP Xtra.

Marsh in Gower Hey Wood

It might look like a forest clearing but in reality this is marshland near the flat bridge I showed a few weeks ago.
