Werneth Low Country Park
In 1920, following a public appeal, the Hyde War Memorial Committee purchased Lower Higham Farm and all its land. Following the purchase, a scheme was put forward to protect the land forever for the health and well being of the community; a lasting tribute to the 710 men from this area who perished in The Great War of 1914 to 1918. The land and farm are now held in trust by the Hyde War Memorial Trust.

During the late 1970s the former Greater Manchester Council, Tameside MBC and the Hyde War Memorial Trust established Werneth Low Country Park which was officially declared open by HRH the Duke of Gloucester on the 9th of June 1980. The country park extends for 80 hectares (200 acres) across the Northern and Western slopes of Werneth Low.
