Behind Gower Hey Gardens

This is how the bank behind Gower Hey Gardens looked a few weeks ago.

In June it was covered in buttercups.

The houses in Gower Hey Gardens (over the fence) have been built on the site of Gower Hey Bank, a large house, once the home of Thomas Middleton, one time Mayor and author of the Annals of Hyde.

More recently in the 1950s it was the home of then teenager Denys Meakin who emigrated to Canada in 1959. His photograph of the house can be seen on Old Hyde.
