The end of the river Tame
This is the view downstream from the last footbridge over the river Tame. It is crossed by a pipework bridge and then flows under the M60 motorway to join the river Goyt and form the river Mersey.
This is the view looking back from under the motorway. The footpath alongside is part of the Trans Pennine Trail.
Before the motorway was built the Cheshire Lines Committee (CLC) railway line through Stockport (Tiviot Dale) crossed the river Tame between these two crossing points. Now only the buttresses remain. It has been reported that these precarious perches have been used as sleeping quarters by homeless people.
