Four photographs of Pole Bank Pond
Pole Bank was originally the home of the Ashton and Beeley famiies. Thomas Kerfoot rented the property from 1912-19.
The hall and grounds were purchased in 1920 by George Frederick Byrom for £4200. He died in 1942 and in 1946 in accordance with his will Pole Bank Hall and Grounds were bequeathed to the Corporation of Hyde for the use and recreation of the general public. Read details of the bequest.
The hall itself is now a nursing home and the grounds are a public open space.
A video by "Lilac Toad" with old photos relating to the history of Pole Bank can by found on YouTube.
