Looking east along Woodhead Reservoir, from the A6024 Woodhead Road running from Holmfirth, showing the trackbed of the former Manchester to Sheffield 1500V electrified line running across the far side of the reservoir heading towards Woodhead Tunnel. Road traffic can be seen crossing Woodhead Bridge whilst traversing the only remaining Woodhead Route; the busy, winding, and regular accident affected A628 trunk road.
