Waiting under Manchester Road


This shows the underside of the Manchester Road bridge over the Peak Forest Canal.

Last month I showed you the approach to the bridge, and last year the view from the other side.

A view from 2000 can be found on Old Hyde.

I noticed that you have a lot of pictures of buildings.
I love them too and this bridge is very nice. Interesting to see under it...
My favourite picture of your blog so far :)

Jilly said...

Nice photo, Gerald. I love photos taken thru tunnels or archways.

Nathalie said...

Beautiful photo.

Is this area iconic of Hyde?

Ineke said...

Hi Gerald,

Pity you don't run with the theme! On the other hand, when i think of Hyde i think of that murderous doctor :)

Sally said...

And sometimes when I think of these kinds of bridges I think of nefarious things! Too many BBC murder and cop shows I think!

You are cordially invited to return to Sydney for a reconsideration of the Opera House and its place in people's thoughts!

The old boats would go through these almost touching the sides wouldn't they. Do they still?

Hyde DP said...

Ineke yes I fear you are right which is why I decided not to do the theme this month - but if you want to know more about Shipman you can read my account at http://www.geraldengland.co.uk/gx/shipman.htm

Sally it does look a little scary - my friend Tom posted a comment about someone murdered near the canal on an earlier picture from the area.

Lynn I'm sure you are right - it is still well used by narrowboats.

Nice exploring under the bridge.

Ghost Of Red Pump St said...

Its a lovely stone bridge situated near to where the guts of Hyde heavy industry once was / still is.

Jilly - by a complete coincidence, I have posted a photo looking through a tunnel-like bridge today on my Ashton photo blog (see first link on the right).

If you really like tunnels, have a look at this page on another of my sites here.

Gordon said...

A lovely old bridge; and a nice photo.

Chris said...

Nice photo, Gerald. Like, Jilly, I like photos taken through tunnels, archways, bridges, etc.
To answer your question. . .Yes, Nyle Frank does still live in Nashville, from what I can tell.

Old Wom Tigley said...

"Ghost Of Red Pump St" great name and it jumped right out at me...

Hi Gerald, I was here the other day, Aldi are making a new Super Market right there on the left where the Engineers shop used to be.. The same to have done quite a bit of work there already.

Ham said...

That fence looks like a recent "Health & Safety" addition

isabella said...

I hope this road is for pedestrian traffic only!

(if you missed a golf course and an alligator on my post today, you must come back and enlarge the LEISURE photo ;-))

Felicia said...

Gerald, I think you've done enough work on theme days and more to take a break once in awhile, although we do miss your participation! I remember this bridge from last year as well.

Jackie said...

Thanks for stopping by Glasgow DP today :)

It looks very bright and sunny through the bridge - was this taken recently?

Ann (MobayDP) said...

I think this is such a lovely photo. I love these little stone tunnels and bridges.

Neva said...

A great shot.....I love the arch...

Gwyn said...

I was looking forward to seeing your post for theme day. When I didn't see Hyde listed, I thought oh no, is he not feeling well. Thanks for sharing the real reason.
I wish I could send you some of our snow. We received about 8 inches today.

Squirrel said...

this is so perfect with the bird.

Ghost Of Red Pump St said...

Thanks Old Wom Tigley, I thinks its quite original. I ve been using it for a few years now on Hyde Uniteds and several other message boards.

Gail said...

This would be another good black and white shot with a tinge of color somewhere.
