A Walk down Pudding Lane:
Hattersley to Longlands
Pudding Lane is an old route between Mottram and Godley. At Hattersley it was preserved as a walkway when the Manchester overspill estate was built in the 1950s.
Here between Wardle Brook Avenue and Hattersley Road West the houses are built without individual road access as car ownership was low at that time.
The estate has seen many improvements in recent years with much of the older stock of houses being demolished.
Also now demolished is Harehills Primary School which closed in 2002. Its site was on the left of the fence.
Past the school the lane leads into an old wood.
On the left are some large private houses.
Eventually the lane leads to the modern A57 Mottram Road at Longlands Lodge.
For the return journey visit Hyde Daily Photo.
