M62

The 95.1-mile long M62 motor­way crosses the Pen­nines and con­nects Liv­er­pool to Hull via Man­ches­ter and Leeds.

It was com­pleted in 1976 and includes the high­est point of the country’s motor­way net­work where it crosses Sad­dle­worth Moor at 1442 ft above sea level.

Near to the high­est point is the land­mark Stott Hall Farm which is sit­u­ated in between the M62s east and west­bound car­riage­ways. The farm remains due to the geog­ra­phy of the sur­round­ing land which means the west­bound car­riage­way had to be con­structed higher than the eastbound.
