Discovery in Godley Vale

Is this a nodding donkey?

It is actually the end of a tree that has fallen across the Godley Brook.

Closing down sale at edge clothing

The edge clothing store in Clarendon Square Shopping Centre is closing down. As far as I can ascertain the company is a wholesale business based in Manchester since 2007 but one that doesn't have a website.

St George's New Windows

I posted a photograph of the inside of St George's on 28th September 2014.

The original stained glass windows in St George's were destroyed when a bomb dropped on Church Street during WWII. New windows have now been created by glass artist Sarah Galloway who was commissioned in 2012 to create a new east window and two adjacent side windows. They were installed and dedicated by the Bishop of Chester in February 2015.

This is the right-hand side window.

This is the left-hand side window. The trees in the churchyard can be seen waving in the wind through the windows.

A detail of the central East window.

Another detailed photograph can be found on my photoblog: sithenah.

Information on the history of St George's can be found on Old Hyde.

Godley Hill Road and Kerry Way

The top of Godley Hill Road leading to the Kerry Foods factory has been reduced to a footpath following the construction last year of a new road, Kerry Way, which can be seen on the other side of the fence.

This view is looking back down the former access road.

The new road past the Kerry Foods factory (formerly Walls) will eventually lead to a new light industrial area being created on land at Hattersley, but for now there is access only as far as a farm.

Earlier photos around the area can be seen on the post dated 7th October 2014.
