An Aerial View

On 11th July 2013 Mike Richardson was on an EasyJet flight from Edinburgh to Luton and whilst over Stockport took a photograph across Audenshaw reservoirs and beyond. The original photograph can be seen on Geograph.

I've cropped and enhanced the portion that highlights Hyde.

Godley reservoir stands out below the M67 (sweeping towards the roundabout at Hattersley and the new Tesco) and above the Manchester to Glossop railway line. Also prominent is the route of the former Godley Junction to Apethorn Railway Line, now TransPennine Trail and National Cycle Network 62.

Easily recognised are Ewen Fields (Hyde FC ground) and Garden Street recreation ground. Others will doubtless pick out other areas.
