The Clearing of Wharf and Toray Mills

Wharf Mill was demolished some time ago. The retaining wall alongside Dukinfield Road was left in situ. Now that too has been demolished.

The nearby Toray Mill next to the Peak Forest Canal was also demolished a few years ago. The sites are now been cleared.

There are plans by Bellway Homes to develop an estate of 66 new homes on the site of the two mills.

How many magpies?

Obviously just one here - a zoomed shot that has been cropped and given a black pencil treatment.

A wider shot including some of its mates.

How many can you see now?

A new flag flying

At the end of December I showed you how the Union Flag on the top of the Town Hall was tattered.

Following something of an outcry to the shamefaced council it has now been replaced.

No more winners at the Astoria

The Astoria Bingo Hall closed down in 2010 and the building is looking the worse for wear with buddleia growing out of the wall and the signage starting to go. It was originally a cinema called "La Scala" and was also used for a time as a dance hall.

See how it looked when still open in 2007 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol.1.

Here is how it looks now from the bus station entrance.
