walking the old road

August 20, 2012

This is 2 views of the old A625 which once snaked it’s way up the side of Mam Tor. The landslips and earth movements of Mam Tor,   ‘ the shivering mountain’  caused the road  to be patched up many times,  reduced to a single lane road and then finally closed in 1979. Tarmac as ancient geology, sheep and walkers clamber over it.
