Lymes Road
Lymes Road
A track through Springpool Wood debouches onto Lymes Road. Lymes Road is a BOAT (Byway Open To All Traffic) which runs between Keele village and the A53. The blue which can be glimpsed through the trees in the background is the side of a passing lorry on the M6, which at this point runs very close and parallel to Lymes Road
M6 Motorway
The M6 motorway runs from junction 19 of the M1 at the Catthorpe Interchange, near Rugby to the Gretna junction (J45). Here it becomes the A74(M) which continues to Glasgow.
The M6 is the longest motorway in the United Kingdom (232 miles) and one of the busiest. It incorporates the first length of motorway opened in the UK (the Preston bypass in 1958) and forms part of a motorway "Backbone of Britain", running north-south between London and Glasgow via the industrial North of England. It is also part of the east-west route between the Midlands and the east coast ports.
