The Old Road

The Old Road
Originally uploaded by Brenden Preece.
Less than a mile outside Tintwistle a narrow green lane leads off the main A628 Woodhead Road. This is the route of the old road before the modern tarmac carriage way was laid down, which was probably about the same time the reservoirs were built. Other parts of the route are obvious for example where it leads down into Crowden. I dont know the complete route of the road which was in effect the Manchester to Saltersbrook Turnpike. I live on 'Old Road' in the village which obviously formed another part of the traditional route. I will find out more and report back.
