Under The Godley Arches


These are the Godley Arches over the A57 on the East side of Hyde.

Just to the left, on the embankment, is Godley station and the entrance for Manchester-bound trains.

The entrance for Glossop-bound trains is on the other side of the arches.

Godley Station replaced the now closed and disappeared Godley East Station, aka Godley Junction, where a freight-only branch line ran towards Woodley.

The A57 is an old road that ran from Lincoln via Worksop, Sheffield, Glossop, Hyde, Manchester and Warrington to Liverpool. This section is now by-passed by the M67 Motorway.

The railway line carries trains from Manchester Piccadilly to Glossop, but at one time it went all the way to Sheffield via the Woodhead Tunnel. Nowadays at Dinting Junction all that is left of that old route is a short spur to Hadfield.

See the arches from the end of Station Road on Hyde DP Xtra.
