Knutshaw Bridge

At this point the A58 ring road splits to go north into Beaumont Road and the A676 to Rumworth. West of here is Hunger Hill. The derivation of the name may be from the personal name 'Knut' (as in Canute, King Canute) and 'sceaga' or 'shay' meaning copse, overall the copse belonging to Cnut. Early references spell this Noteshaye and Nutshell. [view up hill road]
