Monday Mellow Yellows: Dukinfield Junction

Compare this view, if you will, with the one I took from the same point in June 2010.

The bus stop on Birch Lane has gone and the whole layout of the junction redesigned with traffic lights and dropped kerb crossings for pedestrians. On the left the trees that hid Hyde Mill from view have gone. The mill has been demolished and an estate of new houses built on the site.

Compare it too with the photograph taken by Alan Young in June 1990. There was then no shelter by the bus stop and the building at the top of Ashton Road was still the Junction Inn.

See the same scene in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

  1. Nobody could miss this yellow sign. Nice shot!


  2. Great shot at the junction.

  3. ...comparing...quite a lot of difference and some additions. I like 'today's' best.
