Seven Centuries of Contrast.

Behind the railings is Newton Hall, built in 1370 and restored in 1970.

Behind the Hall are industrial units which house the Starchaser rockets.

Starchaser began life as an experimental rocket test programme set up in 1992 by Steve Bennett from Dukinfield.

A few years ago the rocket was on show at Gee Cross Fete. Now they are busy recruiting astronauts.

The CDPB theme today is "Contrast": Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

Space men in Hyde?!

Beautiful old house and good choice with those modern buildings behind. So much history - seven centuries, no less.

very interesting solution. To be honest I like better the old part:) Great choice for the theme day

1370, wow, that's pretty old. In Guatemala we have some ruins that are few thousand years old... but then you already know that. ;-)

Thats a real contrast, nothing made up there. The house looks like its split in 2.

It is pretty old and so contrast with modern building behind.

You got a Posty: I want to give 15 postcards :)

Hi Gerald
Great 'Contrast Posting'.. I laughed at Marleys comment about Spacemen in Hyde... I've certainly seen a few 'spaced-out men in the area before now.

Buck said...

Excellent realisation of the theme! Wonderful photo, wonderful text.

Julie said...

Lois said...

That is a nice contrast. Great post for Theme Day!
