ABC Wednesday: R is for Rutherford Close
Rutherford Close off Railway Street is an estate of modern houses built on a former railway goods yard.
The Manchester Piccadilly to Rose Hill (Marple) railway line still runs at the back of the houses.
In the background, beyond the railway, can be seen one of the warehouses that is part of the Adamson Industrial Estate. The one in view is dated 1898 but others are older and on the other side the warehouses overlook the Peak Forest Canal.
Rutherford Close is named after local artist Harry Rutherford.
