The M62 was built in stages between 1971 and 1976. It links Liverpool and Hull and passes through Huddersfield along with Leeds and Manchester. It is 107 miles long and the motorway's highest point, 1,221 feet (372 m) above sea level at Windy Hill, is the highest point of any motorway in England. The road divides around the Stott Hill Farm near Saddleworth Moor for engineering reasons because of surrounding geology.
