Grey autumn on the Trans Pennine Trail

Through my neck of the woods the Trans Pennine Trail, a long distance walking route, and the National Cycle Network Route #62 from Southport to Hornsea follow the line of the former Godley Junction to Apethorn railway.

Here, looking towards the Stockport Road bridge, the leaf-strewn quagmire on the left is the bridlepath for horse riders, whilst the tarmacced foot/cyclepath is on the right.

See how it looked in July 2006.

A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White.


  1. Autumn inside.

    Please have a good weekend.

  2. Beautiful, gentle leading lines pull me right into your photo to follow that walker. I like that I next notice the texture of leaves rather than the color of leaves. Beautiful, beautiful shot.

  3. Great b&w composition.
    Good photowork!

  4. Pretty quaggy here too now.

    I've moved to new URL. Message in a Milk Bottle 2 (M2)

  5. Good idea to have separate sections - I'd hate to cycle or walk through the mud! Lovely autumnal photo.

  6. The photo and weather may fit in all the grey, mut the man at the end of th trail gave it life.
