The Icy TransPennine Trail


This was taken last Sunday morning along the Trans Pennine Trail. Formerly the route of the Godley Junction to Apethorn Railway, it is now part of the National Cycle Route #62. The tarmac track on the left is for cyclists and walkers. That was clear but the track on the right, which is for horse riders, was thick with ice. Normally it is full of squelchy mud.

In the distance is Dowson Road Bridge, a closer view of which can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

  2. Wonderful wintery scene Garald, the horse track must be quite treacherous when it's icy like that.

  4. Neither ice nor squelchy mud sounds appealing to me!! But this does look like a nice trail to wander.
