Anyone going to Mossley in recent weeks may well have noticed a rather large blot on the landscape appearing on the Micklehurst side of the valley. This is most prominently seen from Top Mossley or Roughtown, looking across the valley.
The work that is taking place is the construction of a spectacular new building for Mossley Hollins High School to replace the building on the existing cramped site.
Plans of the site layout and drawings of how the building will look can be seen on Tameside Council's website here.
The design of the building is complicated because of the sloping site. The building will have five levels and the entrance and reception area would appear to be on the third floor!
Of course, the site looks a mess while the work is at this stage, but when building is completed and the area landscaped it should look very different.
