Newton Street was originally the A627 via Flowery Field to Ashton-under-Lyne and Dukinfield Road on the left was the B6170 taking a more direct though Dukinfield to Ashton. In the 1960s the two roads swapped numbers.
Behind the wall a 7 acre industrial and office development site is now for sale. See how it looked when the Ashton Brothers' mill complex, Carrfield Mill, Bayleyfield Mill and Balaclava Mill, was extant on Old Hyde.
Take a peek behind the fence at the demolition site on Hyde Daily Photo.
