Hopefully the development will require the installation of a set of traffic lights. There isnt enough along that stretch..

:D:thumbsup::P...Very frustrating isn't it..!

 

Here's a fab old clip....It includes Penistone road BEFORE all the Lights.!

 

 

SKIP to around the 19 mins mark...Where they come onto the A61 at Tankersley.

 

Past High Green and through Grenoside.

 

When they enter 'Dee Dar land'....:thumbsup::D

i would say that film was mid 60s.

 

If you freeze at about 3.37, it looks like a C registered car ('65?), maybe an A35 van or similar.

 

But interesting, few dodgy overtakes though!

I would also say mid 60's...Yes that's an Austin A35 van.

 

You have to laugh at some of the 'Overtakes'... It appears some of them drivers were in a rush doesn't it..!!

Filmed on a motorbike perhaps??

 

Given the speed an all that, not many cars back in the day were so swift.

This was great  -thanks for posting. 

 

Watched from 19 minutes and was amazed by how little most of the A61 had changed. Was completely lost after they passed Hillsborough, though.

At the beginning they are setting out in a Wolseley 16/60. Pity it's only in 480 res, but you can just make out the petrol pumps where Lidl now is, and a brief glimpse of the hacksaw factory which stood on Wednesday's car park.
