Sheffield or Stockport?


An old Hyde Corporation signpost on Lumn Road. This pre-Warboys sign lay on the T-junction with Queen Street. Originally traffic from Dowson Road could cross Market Street into Queen Street past the James North factory. As Queen Street was one-way from Market St to Lumn Road, lorries leaving the factory had to turn down to this T-junction. The factory was demolished in the 1990s. A school and new houses were built on the site. At this end, Queen Street (renamed Douglas Street) is reduced to being an access passage to the rear of houses on Lumn Road.

The sign is a survivor; see how it looked in July 2007.
