Views around Hyde (2)

One of my favourite places in Gee Cross - Gower Hey Woods. I am fortunate to live on the edge of it ,too.
Lots of lovely memories of this place.

Coincidentally, I took a couple of photos looking back at that fence from further down the path towards the end of last year. I'll email them to you.
