Tranquil spot.

 With all the upheavel with the market being redeveloped, I just thought I'd show this shot which shows the Cenotaph on Werneth Low overlooking all the mayhem !
Such a place of tranquility !

As Tufty Club said, if you're not from Hyde you might have trouble spotting it, so I've zoomed in :)

If you didn't know Hyde, you'd have a job spotting it.

It's a beautiful place. I like how it overlooks the busy town.
