Clanway Lane

clanwaylane14

My Streets Project takes in Clanway Lane. It is an old road leading north out of Tunstall following the contours of the Scotia valley. At the Tunstall end it begins at the end of Adams Avenue (see the Streets link on this page) as a private road leading past a traveller site and high back fences to three old cottages, over the remains of a railway bridge. One of the cottages is called Machine Cottage and this was an early industrial site. The lane is blocked by a gate; and for the rest of its route it has been left for nature to take over and now just a footpath through nature and back fences of an estate. It ends rather abruptly at Tunstall’s newest road, James Brindley Way with steep steps leading to a pedestrian crossing and disappears beneath a newly built estate, which is outside the half-mile limit I set for this Project. I have photographed this lane many times over the past few years through all the seasons, this was shot a few days ago in high summer when the undergrowth and wild flowers are at their fullest.
