OK, I know it is falling to bits, but this road has generated a lot of interest on SABRE, so I thought I would put this forward for POTM.

On its decent into Hatherage, the ex-A625 sweeps by the Millstone Edge named, um, Millstone Edge. The Peak District at its finest.

Former A625 at Mam Tor

A picture showing how the elements can destroy a road! This used to be the main road between Manchester and Sheffield, but the geology around Mam Tor led to several land slips between 1930s and 1977 before it was finally closed in 1979

Broken Road at Mam Tor and Little Mam Tor
This is the broken road which lies between Mam Tor and Little Mam Tor. The road was first turnpiked (built) in 1802 and was damaged several times by landslides from Mam Tor. Eventually the local authorities decided to close the road in 1979. It is closed to traffic but people can still walk on it.

The road here has been totally abandoned. After persistent landslides, the decision was made in 1979 to give up on this stretch and reroute the A625 trans-pennine route well away from this area.
