Signs on the Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Route #62 runs here along what was the trackbed of the Godley Junction to Apethorn railway. At one time an iron footbridge crossed here - see Hyde Cheshire - but it has been demolished and now a footpath leads from Walkers Fold over the trail and up to Donald Avenue.

The sign in the centre directs horse riders to use the gravel bridleway on the foreground left, leaving the tarmacked path for the use of cyclists and walkers.

On the corner is a Sustrans milepost of the Cockerel design which I featured in October 2014.

See the path from Walker Fold on Hyde DP Xtra.

A contribution to signs, signs.

  3. I doubt that you will run out of these wonderful trail markers. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  4. Those trail markers certainly do appeal to me.
