near to Handsworth, Sheffield, Great Britain

Retford Road, Handsworth
Retford Road, Handsworth
The view down Retford Road, Handsworth. Formerly known as the A57 (now B6200) prior to completion of the bypass which now skirts Mosborough and Beighton before meeting up with the M1 at Junction 31, this road is still heavily used as one of the main arterial roads into Sheffield from Woodhouse, Aston and Worksop. Just down the road on this south-east view, the road splits right to head off to Woodhouse. The photo is taken close to the (apparent) location of a milepost showing 5 miles to Sheffield and 13 to Worksop (according to the 1905 maps).
