Tesco site at Hattersley
Looking from Stockport Road at the road leading up to the upper storey of the Tesco superstore car park. On the right, still under construction, is what will be the new Hattersley Community Hub which will include a library and other facilities. Visible in the background is the Tesco filling station and beyond that the village of Mottram in Longdendale. Mottram church is hidden behind the multi-storey car park. In 2008 it was visible beyond the monkey puzzle tree SJ9895 : Hattersley Monkey Puzzle Tree which was located just behind the lamppost on the left.
Hattersley Monkey Puzzle Tree
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.
