King Alfred Weekend saw the launch of the Hidden in Hyde project – an initiative to track down and record the ‘lost’ stones of Hyde Abbey. When the Abbey was dissolved in the 16th Century, its building were knocked down and the stones re-used by local builders. Many of them can still be seen from the public road, embedded in the walls of houses, but others are hidden in back gardens or attics. For more about the project, see the Hidden in Hyde page.
