Crown and Cushion

The Crown and Cushion on Victoria Street is home to the Newton branch of the Manchester City Supporters Club.

See how it looked in 2009 on Hyde Daily Photo Volume 1.

Since then it has been repainted on the outside and also has a new pub sign which can be seen on Hyde Daily Photo Volume 2.

Compare this scene with the one in December 2013.

Ralph's Fold Well 2014

The Methodists' theme for the 2014 Gee Cross Well Dressing at Ralph's Fold Well, was based on a verse from Dorothy Frances Gurney's poem "God's Garden".

Although well-dressing is a custom mostly confined to Derbyshire, it can be seen in adjacent counties too. Well dressing celebrations were held regularly in Gee Cross from the 1820s until 1878. The custom was revived by the local Women's Institute in 2000.

For photographs from earlier years and links to more information about well dressing see this link.

For a closer look at the verse see Hyde Daily Photo.
