New Sustrans Sign at Foxholes


One of six new mileposts recently erected by Sustrans on the former Godley to Apethorn railway line, now Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route 62. 1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and they are now to be found along the cycles routes through the UK.

There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, Rowe Type by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.

This one at Foxholes is the Andrew Rowe type with three arms. The third arm points to "Local shops" although there is in fact only one nearby shop, Grocer Jack's on Waverley Road.

In the background is an oak tree that has featured here before, lastly in March 2013.

For another view of the sign see Hyde DP Xtra.
