Friday Bench (7): Knott Lane

This week's bench is on the corner of Dowson Road and Knott Lane, Hyde.

Dowson Road is the A627 out of Hyde towards Stockport. The road was built in the 1930s to bypass the village of Gee Cross.

Knott Lane is an ancient route that leads down from Hyde Chapel towards Cheetham Fold.

My favourite benches from last week include a carved park bench in Inverness, Rune's natural wooden benches, the Sylvan Muse's in Moorbank Botanic Garden, Barbara's at Horseshoe Bay, PERB's ornate two-seater, Dagrun's simple log and Mrs Nesbitt's recycled bench.


  1. Loved the simplicity of this G!
    Have a good weekend!


  2. It's unusual to see a bench with legs that are at right-angles to the seat. It looks very sturdy.

  3. Nice place to rest your tired legs on the way home from the shops.

  4. How handy to have a waste bin close by to toss the newspaper once it's been read.

  5. What a welcome site to those walking past! Great find. The bench is simple and sturdy and a welcoem sight to those walking past. Nice to know what they see from that bench too!

  6. Simple and effective, but the bench might do with a lick of paint.

  7. Delightful!

    I could never understand why the place benches to look at traffic junctions, mind.

    I love the colour of the bin.

  8. Nice. Conveniently close to the litter bin.
    It is good to remember your street as an ancient route.
