This is the third week in a row that the "My World" image is of a building on Stockport Road, but today's is at the completely opposite end of the road from the previous two!
Today's photo shows the Corporation Arms and the road junction at Guide Bridge. The pub was opened in 1850 and was a beer house until it was fully licensed in 1857.
The road junction marks the boundary between Ashton and Audenshaw. The wall to the left of the pub is actually the parapet to the canal bridge which gives its name to this district. The same wall can be seen from the Ashton Canal in the first photo on this page, with the pub on the left of the picture.
This is a very busy road junction so it was remarkable that I was able to capture a moment when the road was empty!
"Corporation Arms" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.
