Blackmoorfoot Road, Crosland Hill, Lockwood
Blackmoorfoot Road, Crosland Hill, Lockwood
This used to be called Manchester Old Road, and is a long, evenly graded climb, probably straightened when it was improved as a turnpike road (the Wakefield and Austerfields Trust)in 1759. This road continues to Marsden and Standedge, but was replaced by the road that became the A62 in the early 19C. Out of sight on the left is the Standard (now Black Cat), fireworks factory. The pub is the Sands House and the road to the right Sands House Lane.
