The end of the line at Apethorn
Walking, cycling or riding a horse west along the Trans Pennine Trail will bring you to Apethorn Lane. A fence under the bridge prevents you walking any further as just round the bend is where the old Godley to Apethorn railway joins the existing line from Manchester via Hyde Central to Woodley and beyond.
See how it looked in 2009 on Hyde Daily Photo Volume 1.
Since then all traces of the former line beyond the bridge (now numbered 119) have been lost under the abundant vegetation as can be seen in yesterday's post V is for Vegetation.
Another recent addition to scene is a Sustrans Milepost of which more can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.
A contribution to signs, signs and Good Fences.
