ABC Wednesday - Q is for Quick View
Quick View is a street at Hey Farm, Mossley on the Pennine hills above Manchester.
Hey Farm is a modern housing estate built on the old farmland. The street is so-called because it affords a view across the valley of the River Tame to Quick Edge.
Quick was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and until 1864 was part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. Together with its neighbour Roughtown it was merged with Mossley which itself in 1974 became part of Tameside Metropolitan Borough, Great Manchester.
There is much more about the history of Quick on the Mossley Community Centre website.
