Sunday Stroll: Lily Lanes

Today's photo shows Lily Lanes at Hartshead, one of the popular routes up to Hartshead Pike, as it passes Lane End Farm.

The road becomes unsuitable for most motor vehicles beyond this point, although I drove an old car of mine all the way up many years ago!

The last time we took a stroll up Lily Lanes there was a coating of snow!

I don't know whether anyone can offer an explanation as to why, like Knott Lanes in Bardsley, Lily Lanes has a plural name? A local oddity, perhaps?

See Google Aerial View of this location.
See LiveSearch Birds Eye View of this location.


  1. There is an explanation of the plural term.
    It is not just common to your area.
    The farm opposite my house is named The Outlanes and there is a nearby outlanes farm.
    A prize for the person coming up with the
    explanation perhaps !

  2. Wondering if the well across the road is still there!
    The farm,now a house,used the well for water.

  3. some chap coming down the lane on his push bike,

  4. G'day from New Zealand

    Over 35 years since last hike up to the Pike, remember this farm cottage, seem to recall a little barking dog always at the gate. ... !! Looks like the seal of the path could do with some work ;-)

  5. i cycled up here myself last week was a tough ride.
