Looking down Knott Lane

I've shown you the top of Knott Lane before.

It is an ancient route that leads from Hyde Chapel down to Cheetham Fold and over the railway to Knott Fold.

Halfway along it crosses Dowson Road and there is a bench on the corner where you can rest your feet before crossing over.

This is the section on the other side of Dowson Road.

You should enter that sky in SKYWATCH. It absolutely billows.

I used to wait on this corner for the bus to school - originally the No 90, which then changed to the No 389 when SELNEC bus company took over from the old Joint Board bus company - the route ran from Marple to Stalybridge. It doesn't look like there is a bus stop there now.

There is a bus stop in the picture. You may need to click on the photo to see it full size (as always).

There is still a 389 service which now goes from Stockport to Ashton. It goes a very circuitous and lengthy route via Bredbury, Greave, Yew Tree and Ridge Hill.

I've walked this lane many many times Gerald, I was born on Cheetham Fold, and walked this way to Enfield Sreet school everyday while in infant school..
