Places of Interest - Hyde

 

Werneth Low Country ParkWerneth Low Country Park - Gee Cross Hyde

The "lowest" spur in the Pennine Chain, the Park is famed for its views. The Welsh hills are visible on a clear day. Greater Manchester opens up in the foreground and to the south and east the view is dominated by the Peak District. Whilst daytime views are breathtaking, the evening sunset and glowing lights of the North West conurbations are spectacular. After a nice stroll around the Park, why not go for hearty meal at the Hare and Hounds Public House.

Newton HallNewton Hall, Dukinfield Road, Hyde

A fascinating 14th-century cruck-framed building which enables the visitor to see exactly how a medieval timber-framed hall was constructed. In Roman times there was a track that ran up the hill from the River Tame, just below the Hall, all the way to Melandra Castle near Glossop, which is about 3 miles to the east. Full details about the restoration are available from the Tourist Information Centre in Ashton.
