Mill Lane


Mill Lane links Haughton Green to Hyde.

The bridge over the River Tame was erected in 1895.

Haughton Green is part of Denton, Lancashire and uses a Manchester postcode, whilst Hyde is part of Cheshire and uses a Stockport postcode.

Since 1974 both are part of Tameside Metropolitan Borough in the administrative county of Great Manchester. The continued existence of administrative counties called Cheshire and Lancashire does not alter the boundaries of the geographical counties.

Greater Manchester County Council was abolished in 1986, and so its districts (the metropolitan boroughs) are now effectively unitary authority areas; however, the metropolitan county, which is some 496 square miles (1,285 km2),[3] continues to exist in law and as a geographic frame of reference.[4] Several county-wide services are co-ordinated through the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities.

I still can not travel on Mill Lane with the reminder of the 'Bone Works'... that had to be the worst smell a town has had to put up with. :O)

Great image by the way.

Could have taken to day or 50 years ago and will still hold up in a further 50. I lost track of counties and changes many moons ago.

Looks like a scene that could be the same as 50 years ago. Ageless beauty and simplicity.
