Cutting edge


Just a line following your article on the 'Standege' Tunnel, (NCE last week). The correct spelling is Standedge, pronounced Stand-edge, as can be checked on the OS map, which shows the summit of the A62 runs through the Standedge Cutting on Saddleworth Moor above the tunnel.

For information, Stanage is a three mile long gritstone outcrop situated near Hathersage, Derbyshire, in the Peak District and is much beloved by climbers. I am not aware of any other local Pennine feature named Standege.
