A series of lanes on the rural fringes of Stockport have recently (and very quietly) received new “Quiet Lane” signage, but is a sign enough to make a quiet lane?
It’s still very steep, but oh it’s so much better. The nearly ten-year-old path on the Alan Newton Way which climbs sharply from the River Goyt up to Marple Hall has now been massively improved with cleared vegetation and a new sealed surface.
Marple’s only off-road cycle route into the borough centre of Stockport will be closed from late March 2021 for much-needed maintenance work on the steep descent below Marple Hall High School to Chadkirk Bridge.
All good things must come to an end, but as we hit the magic number of 26 top cycling highlights of the Peak District borders around Derbyshire, Cheshire and Greater Manchester there’s still plenty of possibilities ahead for this year and beyond…
The green lanes, glorious climbs and interesting destinations keep coming in this A-Z celebrating the stunning cycling on the Peak District borders south east of Manchester. From undiscovered Malcoff and Perry Dale to well-trodden Roman Lakes, Sett Valley and even a thundering dual-carriageway.
Middlewood Way is closed for four weeks just north of Bollington Viaduct as Cheshire East undertake resurfacing and improvement works to the trail, part of NCN Route 55, which runs from Marple to Macclesfield.
This flood-prone rural bridleway on the very edge of Greater Manchester has just had a second round of major improvement works, extending the Flexipave surface begun in 2018 and fixing the drainage problem at the heart of its woes.
Before a certain global pandemic and nationwide lockdown scuppered everything, the Canal & River Trust had a welcome slate of work to repair some of the worst patches of the Upper Peak Forest Canal between Marple and Disley. Now they’re back.
