"Q" is for "Quick Edge" and today's photo shows the hill of that name above Mossley, four miles from Ashton. The hill has a very steep slope on its western side although from this angle it appears as a rounded hump.
Quick Edge is seen here from Luzley Lane at Mossley Cross. St George's Parish Church, Mossley, is seen to the right.
The part of the hill that is visible in this photo is in the borough of Tameside whereas the part you can't see is in the borough of Oldham. Both were in Lancashire before becoming part of the Greater Manchester area. Yet, before the township of Mossley was established in 1885, the whole of Quick Edge was in the West Riding of Yorkshire! The area was in a part of Saddleworth called Quickmere. Quick Manor was situated in what is now known as the Roughtown area of Mossley.
