A58 Bury - Coppermine - 17776.JPG
A56 / A58 Bury

Dads used to tell their kids (and probably still do) that this is the only roundabout in the country where you drive around it the wrong way, i.e turn right on to it. Not true of course, it isn't a roundabout, but it is a weird junction for the unwary. Traffic on the far left of the picture is coming from the south (Manchester) and heading West towards Bolton (or North to Ramsbottom). To go East to Rochdale, drivers from the South turn right keeping the island on their left.

Milepost at Ripponden in West Yorkshire at junction of A58 / A672 / B6113. The place names were chiseled off during the war to confuse the Germans, then kept that way to confuse Lancastrians.

A58 Rochdale Road, Calderdale.

On the left you can see a track heading off over the moor. This is the Roman / Pack Horse route joining, briefly, the A58.

This was a busy road during the Civil War. From Link4Life; a 'strong guard kepte by the Lancashire forces at a passage into both counties at a place called Blakston Edge,'

Defending against the advancing army under Earl of Newcastle in July 1642 were 800 men with a further 1200 garrisoned in Rochdale and 'two pieces of ordnance'.

A58 and Roman Road at Blackstone Edge.

First mapped by John Ogilby (who created the country's 1st road atlas) in 1675, the track on the right is the pack horse route across the Pennines from Lydgate. Follows route of the Roman Road which went from Manchester (Mamuciam) to Ilkley (Verbeia). The gradient is almost 1 in 4.

This - Beaumont Road in Bolton (A58) - was originally S4, and each junction was uncontrolled. Now it's D2, with lane drops at junctions, and signals for every junction.

Quite old signage here - it should now be on a white background as the A58 through Ashton is no longer a major primary route. It's also bent a little...
