SJ8293 : Mauldeth Road West, Hough End

near to Withington, Manchester, Great Britain

Mauldeth Road West, Hough End
Mauldeth Road West, Hough End
From the top of Twenty-Seven Steps, near the railway bridge. This wide dual carriageway was constructed in the late 1920s (replacing a narrower lane that passed Hough End Hall), and connected to a widened Hardy Lane, which terminated at Hardy Farm, some way north of the foot crossing over the Mersey at Jackson's Boat. An extension of Hardy Lane was planned, but never constructed. As a result, even today, the road carries much less traffic than it was built to take.

The central reservation was reserved for tram tracks which, as far as I know, were never laid. However just after the last tree seen in this view, the planned Metrolink line towards Manchester Airport will join from the right, and run along the centre of the road to its junction with Barlow Moor Road / Hardy Lane
