Hoviley Brow/Commercial Street
Hoviley Brow/Commercial Street
Hoviley Brow, now Commercial Street, used to be one of the main roads into Hyde leading from Newton (for Hyde) station. See old photograph LinkExternal link Behind the wall on the right flows Godley Brook alongside what was a dye works and is now "ABC Wax". Ahead the street led to the Market Place. That end of Hoviley Brow has been renamed Clarendon Place. Now it is a dead end for traffic. A footpath leads to John Street and Clark Way whilst a spiral ramp leads to a footbridge over the M67 motorway. On the left there used be rows of terraced houses and shops. Now there is only the motorway. A tunnel known as Cheapside underpass leads into the car park of Morrisons supermarket.
