End of the Crown Pole
In preparation for the refurbishment of Hyde Market the Crown Pole has been dug out of its foundations. As I said in my post of 20th January which shows the pole from the opposite direction, the pole is to be re-sited (but the plans do not say where) whilst the telephone box is to be retained.
The benches between the pole and Clarendon Shopping Centre (the other end to the entrance I showed yesterday) have already been removed.
A closer view of the base of the uprooted pole can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.
See how it looked when newly erected on Old Hyde.
