Crown Point, Denton


Today's photograph is by Roger May. It first appeared on Geograph British Isles and is reproduced here with the photographer's permission.

This busy junction on the A57 between Hyde and Manchester has become busier since the recent opening of a new Morrisons superstore {on the left just before these lights} and a retail park about half a mile along the road to the right. Between them they seem to have killed off the smaller traders in the town.

I like this street...it's very quaint.

Before the construction of the M67 motorway link, about 100 metres to the right, and parallel with this road, it used to be part of the main arterial route from Sheffield to Manchester - the A57.
