Guide Bridge


Today's photo looks westwards along Stockport Road to Guide Bridge, on the boundary between Ashton and Audenshaw.

Guide Bridge itself is across the Ashton Canal, although you would have to look hard for it as you pass. The car heading this way is just crossing the bridge.

Ahead is St Stephen's Church, Audenshaw, built in 1845 in the early Gothic style. Guide Bridge railway station, the first station to serve the Ashton area, is round the corner to the left at the traffic lights.

  2. OK, another tidbit from 1981.
    So, I'm living for a while on South St, up on the right there and on my way home from work, walking from Guide Bridge station I'd nip into the chippy there on the right and grab a quick cheese and onion pie becuse I new my tea wouldn't be enough to fill me up. Them were the days!
