Gee Cross is a suburban village within Tameside Metropolitan Borough. It lies within the town of Hyde and borders Woodley in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport and Godley. A great location, only minutes’ walk from Hyde town centre and with easy access to the M60 Manchester and M62 Liverpool.
The centre of the village dates back to the Domesday Book, the large nearby town of Hyde grew from the Industrial Revolution and now Gee Cross merges into the southern part of Hyde. Historically a part of Cheshire, Gee Cross does not have statutory boundaries.
Gee Cross is home to a Well Dressing festival, an ancient custom in the Pennines. There is also an annual village fete which is a major fund raising event for local charities and is held on the site of a former reservoir which is now the village green.

Hyde is served by six railway stations:
Hyde Central and Hyde North are on the Manchester Piccadilly (Romiley - Rose Hill 'Hyde Loop') line. Flowery Field, Newton (for Hyde), Godley and Hattersley stations are on the electrified Piccadilly (via Glossop) - Hadfield line.
Hyde is off the M67 motorway which is a feeder to the Manchester M60 which in turn connects to the M61, M62, M6 and M65.
Hyde bus station has services to Manchester and to other surrounding areas including Stockport, Ashton-under-Lyne and Oldham.
The centre of the village has numerous retail outlets including a “Tesco Express" convenience store, Hair and Beauty Salons and a wide variety of others. There is a Smith Knight Fay Volkswagen dealership at the bottom of Stockport Road which was fully rebuilt in 2008.
There are pubs in the village to suit every taste. These include The Buxton, The Queen Adelaide, The Werneth, The Cheshire Cheese, and the recently refurbished Grapes Hotel. Another addition to the already thriving Gee Cross pub scene is the Joshua Bradley. Named after the former Mayor of Hyde and situated on the borders of the village, this 19th-century former private hall (Bamford Hall in its previous incarnation) has been subject to a £3 million transformation by Hyde’s brewery into their flagship pub/restaurant and is well worth a visit.
The Bowling Club which re-opened in November 2008 now has a fully serviced restaurant.
There are Anglican, Methodist, and Unitarian Churches. The Unitarian Church in the centre of the village is known as Hyde Chapel and the Anglican Church is called Holy Trinity Gee cross.
Gee Cross is built on the side of a hill called Werneth Low most of which is a protected country park first created as a war memorial by the people of Hyde. It has a visitor’s centre and ranger service.
On a clear day the views are spectacular across to Bolton, Wigan and, on a very clear day, the Welsh mountains. Sightseers can view Manchester city centre, including the tallest tower in the UK outside London - Beetham Tower. The Hare and Hounds pub sits on the top of Werneth Low, as does Hyde Cricket and Squash club, and Werneth Low Golf Club.
The leisure center in Hyde has recently been refurbished and contains a large swimming pool with a wave machine, a 'Red Ripster' aqua slide and a fitness suite. The pool also has a new changing village, cafe and air conditioned eating area. The octagon shaped structure is situated next to Hyde United F.C. ground.
Hyde also has its own Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). This forms part of a UK wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged 13–20 sponsored by the Royal Air Force.
Hyde Library has a gallery called the 'Rutherford Gallery', which exhibits the work of Harry Rutherford, an artist who was from the Tameside area.
