Looking rather sad in its new location off Ashworth Lane. Behind it is the works unit and lorry park for construction site of the new Tesco supermarket across the road.
Hattersley Monkey Puzzle Tree :: SJ9895
The Hattersley Monkey Puzzle tree was planted in 1968 by Barry Tongue in the back garden of his house on Garnett Road. The house along with others in the area were demolished as part of the Hattersley redevelopment plan. By then the tree had become a local landmark and a preservation order was placed on it in 2007.

In 2010 planning permission was granted for Tesco to build a supermarket on the site and the tree was moved to Mill Hill Green on the other side of Ashworth Lane.
