The A635 is a main road that runs between Manchester and Doncaster running east-west through Stalybridge, Saddleworth Moor, Holmfirth and Barnsley.

The section which forms the eastern part of the Mancunian Way is in fact a motorway and is officially designated as the A635(M) though there is no road sign with this designation on,[1] indeed the signs at the entrance of Mancunian Way westbound show A57(M).

The section between Greenfield and Holmfirth which passes across Saddleworth Moor is known locally as the Isle of Skye Road. It takes its name from a public house which was sited at Wessenden Head before being demolished in the 1950s after a fire.
