Valve House at Broomstair Bridge

The A57 road from Hyde to Manchester crossing Broomstair Bridge over the river Tame. The building on the left is a "Valve House" belonging, originally, to Manchester Corporation Waterworks. A pipeline crossing in a girder bridge to the south is part of the aqueduct carrying water from Woodhead to Manchester. Read more about the system on Old Hyde

See it in the opposite direction on Hyde Daily Photo.
