The bottom end of Market Street


At the bottom end of Market Street is the entrance to the bus station.

##17-19 Market Street was occupied by Waterways Bathrooms but the company was dissolved in March 2014 and the premises are now empty.

#21 was the surgery of Dr Harold Shipman. Following his conviction it remained empty for some years before being occupied by Oakland Domestic Appliances but they have since moved up the street to premises previously occupied by Ethel Austin, leaving #21 unoccupied again.

#23 was the Co-operative Pharmacy but the Co-operative Pharmacy Group, the third largest pharmacy chain in the UK, was sold for £620m in October 2014 to Bestway who have re-branded the pharmacies as "Well Pharmacy".

In the early 1960s #25 Market Stret was the temporary home of Martin's Bank but since then it has been Harrison's newsagents.

#27 is Lloyds Pharmacy, one of three pharmacies on Market Street.

Tracks among the buttercups


Hyde College on Stockport Road, Gee Cross opened around 1960. It later became part of Tameside College and was closed in July 2007. Having been in mothballs for many years the site is now being sold in order to help fund a super college in Ashton under Lyne and despite being on Green Belt land a planning application has been made for an estate of 40 houses to be built on the site.

Something has been making large tracks among the buttercups that grow in the grounds.
