Kingston Lodge


Opposite the Farm at Broomstairs is Kingston Lodge.

It is now very much hidden by trees but from the shape of the building I think it must originally have been a turnpike house. They were built to have a good view up and down the road. At Broomstairs boundary between Hyde and Denton this would have been where traffic on the route from Manchester to Sheffield would have had to stop to pay a toll for using the road, which is now the A57.

Would you mind, if I ask you to lock me into this house?

A wonderful week for you.
