Ashworth Lane
Ashworth Lane
The end of the short B6174 from Back Moor to Hattersley. The monkey puzzle tree is dwarfed by the electricity pylon. The tree was moved as its former position lay in land which was being transformed into a Tesco supermarket. Compare with the scene in November 2011 SJ9894 : Ashworth Lane. The Tesco store is now open and a new set of traffic lights have been installed by the entrance.
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.
