Crossing the high hills of the Peak District, Snake Pass lays just on the Midlands border running between Sheffield and Manchester. The name Snake Pass (although it does match the winding roads) actually comes from the emblem of the Snake Inn, who’s building lays upon the Snake Pass. The road was first built as a toll road, as it was the most direct route between Manchester and Sheffield, but soon was taken over by the Woodheads Pass (easier and safer route). Snake Pass features tight bends, and steep hill climes / descents.
