ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yellow

The bright yellow on the roofs of the stalls on Hyde Market is very distinctive.

In 2012 an extensive revamp of Hyde Market is to take place. The £1.2m redevelopment will begin in January and will see the creation of a civic space for events and a change in the layout of stalls to improve access. Key elements of the proposed scheme include the use of high quality materials, removal of street clutter, changing the lay-out of the stalls to improve access to Clarendon Square shopping centre, and the creation of a civic space. The work will take place in two phases so that half of the market will remain open and in use whilst work takes place on the other half. The whole work should be completed by September 2012. The trees such as the one seen behind the stalls will be removed and new permanent stalls provided. Whether their roofs will still be so colourful remains to be seen.

Another view of the Market at the end of 2011 can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

  4. This sounds like a redevelopment that could benefit, if it's going to include an events area, maybe more people will use the space! Hope they keep some of the colourful features that make it special.
