The traffic in and out of Marple is always a problem and it's about to get worse. Dan Bank is getting a complete overhaul for the next couple of years. I think it shows incredible foresight on the part of Stockport Borough Council to do the most invasive work during late August. When we will be away, thankfully.
I love the summer smell of the trees as you approach Marple from Chadkirk. It helps that the traffic is running smoothly.
A wintry picture taken from the bottom of Dan Bank up to Offerton Road is featured in a mod montage on the inner sleeve of one of my favourite albums of all time - All Mod Cons by The Jam. Bet you didn't know that, did you?
