Crosspool – as you’ve never seen it before

An exiled former resident has posted some remarkable pictures of Crosspool online.

In a blog post, the photographer says:

The light was awful, the editing is equally bad; it’s far, far from being a great photo. But I was struck by the fact that despite living here for 17 years, walking these same streets day in, day out, one quick flight with the Mavic and I saw a view of the place that I had never ever seen before.

I love that it gives the impression that the A57 is some near-Parisian tree-lined boulevard, and that my childhood suburb is perched on a cliff overlooking the City Centre. Neither of these things are true, of course, but looking at this here, they could be.

There are further photos from the same shoot on the photographer’s Flickr account.

Magnificent Seven bike race returns to Crosspool on 11 March 2018

Cycists will take on the steep inclines of Hagg Hill and Stephen Hill on Sunday 11 March as part of the Magnificent Seven challenge.

In 2017, competitors were greeted by local residents and a rainbow as they rode up Hagg Hill.

The 2018 route, which is just over 26 miles long, presents each rider with over 4,200ft of climbing, with inclines ranging from 9 to 23 per cent. Spectators are welcome.

Some roads are expected to be temporarily closed for the event.
