The top of Twenty-Seven Steps, Mauldeth Road West, Chorlton
The top of Twenty-Seven Steps, Mauldeth Road West, Chorlton
Mauldeth Road West was constructed in the 1920s, crossing the existing railway line by means of a substantial bridge. The road rises up to cross the line on substantial embankment. Steps on the north side of the road next to the bridge lead down to track level, a footpath then following Chorlton Brook to Nell Lane. Old maps suggest there was a bridge here before the dual carriageway was constructed, carrying a lane which led past Hough End Hall, though the current roadway is substantially wider.

The name twenty-seven steps is a name that was certainly current during the late twentieth century, although I don't know if the location is still known by that name. There certainly aren't twenty seven of them (around thirty?).
