Cronkeyshaw Common, Rochdale, Lancashire
Cronkeyshaw Common is a L-shaped strip of grassed land, about 100m wide by 2 km long in total. This picture is looking along Fieldhouse Road to the east. John Bright's Fieldhouse Mills are out of picture to the left, behind the lady who waits for a No 10 bus destined for Syke terminus. Along the Common, a line of vertical flagstones marks the cutting where the ex-L.Y.R. Rochdale to Facit line runs across, (this cutting was later filled in). In the distance is the Eclipse Mill with its stack, and on the far side of the common, the terrace houses of Greenbank Road are seen. Cronkeyshaw Common is the only place where I have ever seen a notice specifically prohibiting the playing of golf.
