Two views of Hartshead Pike which sits on the hill between Oldham and Tameside. There's been a 'pike' or tower on the site for many generations. It was used as a place where a beacon was lit to announce major events such as royal weddings - or the outbreak of war.
It's said that this young lady used to live in or around the pike. A gypsy woman - she was said to have special powers and to live on a diet of roast hedgehog!
