Back Bower Lane And The Apple And Pear
Diamond Row stood on Stockport Road in Gee Cross just lower down than where the Werneth Pub stands.
Looking up towards Gee Cross
Looking down towards Hyde
I'm showing these as we have been contacted by Steve, a Fireman who is based at Hyde Station and he is interested in seeing any pictures of how this area once was. He would participially like to see pictures of the Reservoirs 'Diamond Row and Stonepit locally known as the Apple and Pear reservoirs.. I'm not sure which was which, so if you know please tell me. Also of interest to Steve are the four cottages, at the bottom of Back Bower Lane.. at the junction with Lilly Street.
Any info on the Arch in the above stonework would be welcome
Thanks to Eric Down's for the 2 pictures above which show Diamond Row Reservoir after it was drained and levelled and being prepared for landscaping.
I'm sure there are other photo's about from around here.
