Kingston Recreation Ground (site of Hyde Hall)

Kingston Recreation Ground lies off Mill Lane above the River Tame. The area was originally the site of Hyde Hall the family estate of Hyde John Clarke.

The original Hyde Hall, dating from the seventeenth century, was considerably altered in the mid eighteenth century creating a Georgian country house. The hall was demolished in 1857, although a farm building survived into the twentieth century. The site of the Hall was purchased by Hyde Corporation in 1924.

Another photograph of Kingston Recreation Ground can be found on Hyde DP Xtra.

A view of Hyde Hall in 1794 and more details about its history can be found on Old Hyde.

What a lovely setting. Since it's a recreation area I hope it's open to the public. I would love to walk there.
