A View Of Gee Cross
This is a view from Gower Hey House, looking over towards Gee Cross taken in 1914. In the year 1795 a book called “Forty Miles Round Manchester” the author “Aikins” said that Gee Cross was like a 'little town'. In 1800’s Gee Cross was known for it’s country fairs, folk came from miles around, these fairs could be very rough at times with many fights breaking out. Gee Cross was home to quite a few rouges and vagabonds, and it’s reputation was very bad…. And now??? Well nowts changed really ;o) ha!
Gower Hey House stood just behind where the gardens of the houses on Balmoral Avenue stands today. This is it in present day. Now it is two semi detached houses.
