SJ9494 : Preparing the Market Ground

taken 7 years ago, near to Hyde, Tameside, Great Britain

Preparing the Market Ground
Preparing the Market Ground
Work has begun on the renewal of Hyde Market. The Northern half of the market ground is being cleared. The Southern half is still trading so the market will remain open during the work. All that is left of the stalls in this section are the metal support pole bases. A workman, with what I think is an oxy-acetylene torch, is melting one of them so that it can pulled from the ground. In the background is one of the displaced stallholders trading from a temporary stall in front of the Santander (former Abbey branch) bank.
