On the 206 bus from Gee Cross to Manchester Piccadilly

By Gerald England

The #206 route from Gee Cross to Manchester takes a curious route, starting with a circular tour of Gee Cross, bypassing Hyde bus station then touring Haughton Green. It avoids Crown Point in Denton by serving Town Lane and Ruby Street. At Gorton it diverts around Gorton Lane, Wenlock Avenue and Bennett Street before finally terminating at Piccadilly Gardens.

All these photographs were taken from the front of the top deck giving a good view of the journey. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page LinkExternal link .

Since this journey was taken the route of the 206 has been changed. In Gee Cross it no longer does a circular journey serving Waverley Road but goes up Stockport Road through the village to Knott Lane. It no longer bypasses Hyde Bus Station. In Denton it now serves Crown Point instead of Town Lane and Ruby Street.
