Woolley Lane


Opposite the Gun Inn at Hollingworth, the A57 from Liverpool to Sheffield via the Snake Pass turns right into Woolley Lane towards Glossop whilst the A628 carries forward down Market Street and over the Woodhead Pass to Barnsley.

Snake Pass! Does it wind or are there vipers there?

The Snake Pass derives its name from the emblem of the Snake Inn; the pub's name and sign was derived from the serpent on the Cavendish arms of the Duke of Devonshire who owned the land all about.

And before you ask, the road is in Derbyshire NOT Devon.

Woolley Lane - but not a wooly blanket or sweater in sight. I wonder if you were drawn to photograph it in January because the idea of a something warm and knitted had eeked its way into your subconscious ...

I didn't photograph it in January - this was three months ago in October!

Hello Gerald!
First of all I would like to wish you a great 2009! Your blog and your posts are wonderful as usually! Great posts and great pictures from England!

Cezar and I spent our time Holliday December in Joinville ( South of Brazil ) with family and friends. But in reality we had some plans to return before this.

However we are still stuck here waiting for some documentation (Visa) to come back to Luxembourg.I need to confess that to be here waiting so long for this documentation it`s not easy and now I`m learn how to deal with all stress and the like!
Anyway we do hope to be able to post new adventures, hints and pictures in our Luxembourg blog as soon as possible.
One more time * Congratulations* for your great Hyde Blog!
By the way, here we got hot days in Brazil and I`m jealous about the snow there!
Regards!Your friend Léia

If I ever get to drive around in the Manchester area again, I just have to take a print-out of this blog for directions.

I like the name of this street!

I remember this well from when my dad used to drive me over to Sheffield University after the holidays.

I notice the corner house still has leaded windows. A rare sight in this day and age of uPVC windows
