Saddleworth Church (St Chad’s) and dog walkers on High Stile Lane, seen from a hill behind Pob Green. The houses in the foreground were once home to the poet, artist, novelist and playwright, Glyn Hughes. This graduate of Manchester School of Art lived here during the 1970s and wrote tellingly of a community on the brink of change. By this time ‘the comers-in had gained control and were pushing prices up. For them the pubs demolished interior walls and filled up the new spaces with polystyrene fakes. The newsagents stocked Vogue, She, The Observer and The SundayTimes… The old shops in the High Street changed hands and brightened into boutiques, restaurants, Do-It-Yourself shops and estate agents’ offices.’
