On a walk a couple of weeks ago I found my way blocked by a tree which had fallen across the duckboards that cross the swampy area in Gower Hey Woods below the access from Swain's Valley and the Trans Pennine Trail - see Hyde Daily Photo.
This view is looking at the fallen tree from the north side of the boards.
I managed to climb over/through it carefully. The weight of the tree had pushed the boards into the swamp - note my muddy footprints.

I then climbed up on to the cobbled path that leads to Osborne Road and took this photograph overlooking the bank from which the tree had fallen.
When I went back about a week later the obstruction had been cleared.
