Prestbury New Road

New Road

A new view of New Road in Prestbury Village, Cheshire. The new view has been made possible by the removal of trees and shrubs in the garden of the Bridge Hotel and it is a vista that I have not seen for more than twenty years. The picture was shot with a 50mm lens on 1.5x crop frame camera so equivalent to a 70mm focal length, the composition is a little cropped at the bottom but you can just about make out the stone bridge taking New Road over the Bollin.

Interesting to note that all of the buildings in this view pre-date the road as the original main street through the village runs along what is now the rear of these buildings where it then made a ford crossing of the river before winding sharply left past the farm that is now the Bridge Hotel and up through the old centre of the village.
