Gower Hey Bank in the 1950s
Gower Hey Bank, a large house at the end of Osborne Road, was 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 and who has kindly sent me this photograph.
Today the site contains a small estate of modern houses named Gower Hey Gardens which back onto Gower Hey Woods.
You can see the fence and banking on Hyde Daily Photo.
