Visual Attributes - update 2004

This site consists of a triangular shaped area of mown amenity grass, with two irregular shaped flower beds (pansies), bounded by Manchester Road to the north and Haywood Lane to the south.  A stone wall separates the site from an adjacent house and garden on the western edge, in front of which sit a bin and a wooden bench. A large stone semi-circular horse trough is located on the eastern corner of the triangle.



The site feels very safe, as it is totally open with plenty of surveillance provided by surrounding houses and passing vehicles and pedestrians. The main road and unbounded short drop to Manchester Road may be a hazard for young children.

Activities that the site supports at present

The bench provides seating, although this is rarely used. A large lit fir tree is erected at Christmas time on this site, due to its good location on the main road.



Activities that could be supported in the future

The amenity grass and flower beds could be replaced by taller shrubs and herbaceous plants that would be much more aesthetically pleasing, visible from the road and less maintenance intensive. Tree or shrub planting around the bench could provide a more protected, private place to sit.

The charts below have a colour next the description if anything in the list, which was used to identify the whole range of possibilities for Stocksbridge, occurs on this site.
