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.
