Mellow Yellow Monday: Mottram Road, Godley

A brief traffic-free moment on Mottram Road looking towards Hyde just down the road from Godley Arches.

It is normally a busy road, hence the double-yellow lines all along each side. In the UK double-yellow lines mean strictly NO PARKING.

It isn't as busy as it would have been before the building of the M67 bypass around Hyde in the mid 1970s. Before then this was the main road (A57) running from Lincoln to Liverpool by way of Worksop, Sheffield, Glossop, Hyde, Manchester, Irlam and Warrington.

A contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday.


  1. I can smell this road. Dust and leaves mixed.

  2. I might have driven down it in 1977 - in our combi van:) Such a lovely, leafy road - great perspective short.

  3. Beautiful shot! I played too. Mine are here and here.

  4. It's nice when a road isn't heavy on traffic!

    Visiting from Mellow Yellow Monday.
    Golden Leaves is my MYM entry.
    Have a great week ahead.

  5. love the trees on both sides of this road.
