I tried to enlarge the picture in Mozilla when I saw "The Junction" sign on the wall, but I was not able to make out whether it was one or not. Would have been a good name, though.

@RuneE: There is a closer picture of the Junction on Hyde DP at http://hydedailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/08/junction-mottram-moor.html
Thank you for the info, Gerald! Seems like I can recognise a pub when I see one.

Nice shot. Nice junction. I like the paintwork on the street.

@Dina: The roadmarkings indicate that this is what is known in the UK as a "Box Junction". If you are turning right you are not allowed to enter the "box" unless your exit is clear.
I love these buildings. I despair when they are demolished for modern replacements. The character dies.

What a very British scene that is! I love it! J for Junction... perfect!

Is the painter JUST sketching the JUNCTION, you suppose?

A place I hope will be there this time next year and not a faceless road windening excersice. I do like this kind of brickwork.

@babooshka: The place is destined to stay. The traffic queues here are often horrendous. There has been plans for a bypass round Mottram, Hollingworth and Tintwistle for over thirty years but the route is controversial and nothing has happened yet.
I love old buildings. I always wonder about their history, and all of the people who have used them over the years

now that's just a brilliant word choice, and a great image to go with it. :)

That is an interesting corner and a beautiful building.

Alas it has now been converted to residential accomodation.
