M6 Original Haydock Island (night) - Coppermine - 11394.jpg
M6 Original Haydock Island (night)

Whoever took this photo was ether standing very near or ON the M6 hard shoulder!! and stood there for a while judging from the long exposure. Facing in a generally northern direction, with the Northbound exit slip in the foreground. The interesting feature, apart from the lamp posts looking more like steal not concrete, (this photo was taken aprox late 60's early 70's), is the 70 speed limit signs on the EXIT from the motorway? NOTE: Photo from Steven Dowd at newton-le-willows.org

Aerial photo of Haydock Island (M6 J23) before the East Lancashire Road (A580) was pushed through the centre, If you look closely you can see the 'NO signs' on the northbound slip. The M6 is still unlit, and has no reservation crash barrier.

Sorry, I forgot to mention Haydock Island is a hamburger roundabout. The A580 East Lancs Road ploughs through the roundabout under the M6. And once you're on that section, there's no turning back onto the roundabout!
