Broomstair Bridge Valve House


The A57 road from Manchester to Hyde crossing Broomstair Bridge over the river Tame. The building on the right is a "Valve House" belonging, originally, to Manchester Corporation Waterworks. The pipeline crossing in a girder bridge on the south side is part of the aqueduct carrying water from Woodhead to Manchester. Read more about the system on Old Hyde

See it in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

See the view of the river from Broomstair Bridge on sithenah.
