Sepia Scene: Hoviley Brow
Hoviley Brow, renamed Commercial Street, used to lead all the way from Newton (for Hyde) station into Hyde. The last bit is now merged with Clarendon Place.
Today this road leads only to the textile factory by the side of Godley Brook. It was cut off from town by the construction of the M67 motorway in the 1970s.
Ahead can be seen the footbridge over the motorway with the spiral ramp.
See how this scene looked in the 1950s on Old Hyde.
