Over Knott Fold Bridge

The path over Knott Fold Bridge which spans the former Godley Junction to Apethorn railway line now used by the Trans Pennine Trail.

Compare it now with how it looked in September 2013.

See the coloured version on Geograph.

Alas I cannot contribute this to Sunday Bridges at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo as for reasons I don't fully understand the blog owner has deleted all his blogs.

ABC Wednesday: N is for Norfolk Street

Norfolk Street runs parallel to Market Street from Union Street to Reynold Street.

It used to cross Reynold Street and carry on to the Market Place but that part was demolished in the 1960s when the precinct that later developed into the Clarendon Square Shopping Centre was created.

The Norfolk Arms was demolished as part of that development but is remembered by a blue plaque - see Old Hyde for details.

This rough field lies between the Foxholes estate and the Trans Pennine Trail.
