Hill House Farm and Sandy Lane overbridges, view east, 12 December 1997

Hill House Farm and Sandy Lane overbridges, view east (see all photos of the same view)

Sandy Lane is visible at the bottom of this picture; away into the distance are Marsh Lane, Marsh Farm and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal bridges. For the last three years this scene has been heavily scarred by churned earth and heavy plant; now the road is finished and its embankments grassed over the difference is remarkable.

South London's lost motorways

Completing the story of London's epic Ringways, we've just published the Southern Radials, five more motorways that never saw the light of day.

To the north east!

Two new additions to our collection of Opening Booklets take us to Darlington and Middlesbrough.
