Disused Railway Line


Like many disused railway tracks in the UK, this has been turned into a footpath. The original railway line was a loop from Woodley to Broadbottom.

People use it now to walk their dogs or ride their horses.

At the top of the picture you can see an aeroplane. Hyde lies on the inbound flight path for Manchester Airport. Many of them cross the Pennines, follow the Longdendale Valley and descend over Hyde and Stockport before landing.

Beautiful colours. In Portugal there are many disused railway tracks as well. It's a shame, though they make fine walk tracks.

I'm really enjoying your site. Not only are your pictures full of color and sharpness, they are interesting along with your dialogue.
